Soccer in South Australia
The game of soccer has played a significant role for Australia's migrant communities. In the 1990s, soccer teams were encouraged to market themselves to "mainstream Australia", expanding on their traditional migrant supporter base. This included changing team names and logos, and banning ethnic flags at matches. The Migration Museum holds memorabilia from teams prior to these changes, when names and motives depicted clear connections with migrant 'home' countries. Following are just a few of the highlights from within the museum's collection.
