Australia’s major footy codes – Football Australia, the NRL and the AFL – are the latest corporations to come out in support of gay marriage.
The three codes will run a full-page advertisement in Saturday’s The Australian Magazine that accompanies the newspaper under the hashtag #TeamEqual the newspaper has reported this morning.
The campaign is the second to use News Corp newspapers to throw their support behind same-sex marriage. Last May some of Australia’s 50 top corporations – including Westpac, CBA, ANZ and Google – ran a similar full-page ad in The Oz.
Tomorrow’s ad – which features former NRL player Paul Langmack and his partner Amanda Lee – also features the logos of the three respective codes.
