REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

 Adam Goodes Biography

Adam Goodes is a former professional Australian rules footballer who played for the Sydney Swans in the Australian Football League (AFL). Goodes holds an elite place in VFL/AFL history as a dual Brownlow Medallist, dual premiership player, four-time All-Australian, member of the Indigenous Team of the Century and representative of Australia in the International Rules Series. In addition, he has held the record for the most VFL/AFL games played by an Indigenous player, surpassing Andrew McLeod's record of 340 during the 2014 AFL season before having his own record surpassed by Shaun Burgoyne during the 2019 AFL season.

Known for his community work and anti-racism advocacy, Goodes was named the Australian of the Year in 2014. From 2013, his outspokenness on racial issues contributed to his being the target of a sustained booing campaign from opposition fans, causing him to take indefinite leave from the AFL and eventually retire from the game at the end of the 2015 season. The "booing saga" sparked a national debate about racism in Australia and became the subject of two documentary films, both released in 2019. That year, the AFL formally apologized to Goodes for not taking greater action to defend him against fan abuse.

Goodes has been a member of the National Indigenous Council (an advisory body to the Federal Government on Indigenous affairs), and Supply Nation (a government-funded body aimed at growing the Indigenous business sector through the promotion of supplier diversity in Australia).

Goodes is a Director of the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation and STAND (Support Through Natural Disasters), a co-venture between Woolworths and the Salvation Army. He is also the CEO and Co-Founder of the Indigenous Defence & Infrastructure Consortium (iDiC), an organisation that aims to increase the participation of Indigenous companies in long term nation building projects.

Goodes is also an Ambassador for the Racism It Stops With Me campaign, and for a brands including Toyota, David Jones, Qantas and Woolworths.

Goodes has been a Non-Executive Director of the GO Foundation since September 2009.
