Coordinated by the Essendon Football Club and Cricket Victoria, GLoBALL enables international students and new migrants to interact with the broader Victorian community through Australian Rules Football and cricket related activities the whole year round.

GLoBALL aims to promote a sense of belonging, social inclusion and celebrate diversity for newly arrived migrants and students.

GLoBALL provides opportunities for international students and new migrants to interact with EFC members, staff and players.

Founding supporters of GLoBALL are RMIT, The City of Melbourne and the Australian Federation of International Students and the list of supporting organisations keeps growing.

This year, approximately 12,000 new migrants and students from across Victoria were reached through various football and cricket initiatives.

The Australia Day Goes GLoBALL event, hosted at Windy Hill in January was attended by over 3000 people, as over 303 ambassadors registered to be a part of the ever expanding program.

With participants from over 104 countries across the world, the 2011 GLoBALL season was launched at RMIT University with Essendon stars Ricky Dyson and Scott Gumbleton. The GLoBALL season came to a thrilling close in Round 23 against Port Adelaide, with the GLoBALL Cultural Celebrations attended by over 770 people at Etihad Stadium.
