On the back of the successful Fortis Army march in 2021, the Club has decided to make the last home game every year feature a supporter march and guard for the team as they run out. This match will now be known as the Fortis Army. The feedback from the players who ran through the Fortis Army guard was that it was an amazing and motivating feeling to experience. All in attendance that day including the coaches, players and supporters felt it was one of the proudest and best Norwood days to be part of.
With such compelling feedback, the march onto the ground to form a guard will now become a regular event and we will be welcoming all supporters to participate. More details to follow but be sure to come to the last home game, Friday Night August 12th as everyone wearing Norwood Red and Blue will be welcome to march out onto the ground and form a guard for the players to run through. Like last year, it will be an opportunity to say thanks to the players for a great season so far, lifting them up and spurring them onto a big win against the Bays as they strive to play finals football in 2022.
During our last home match, we will also take the opportunity to celebrate the Eyre Peninsula, our Regional Zone. Look out for fresh oysters, seafood, and other EP-related products across Coopers Stadium for all to enjoy. There will also be several EP adventure crowd prizes across the evening awarded to some lucky supporters in attendance.
The Eyre Peninsula is renowned for its oysters and seafood, spectacular coastline, and fantastic marine and ocean experiences. Come along to our last home game on Friday Night August 12th and enjoy a taste of the EP and cheer on the team in style!
A Remembrance Round Video will again be played throughout the final match against Glenelg on August 12. This gives supporters a chance to recognise those loved ones who have passed away. The video will be played twice throughout the night and uploaded onto the club’s media channels and website the following week.
