As the world of Aussie Rules stares solemnly onto ghostly goal-squares and barren fields, the White Line Fever pagan footy huddle gathers to raise the pigskin (footy) from the dead. We invite you on a two-week journey of altar-building, Zoom rituals, psychic-inside-50 reflection and fire sacrifice – not only to resurrect footy, but to incarnate the fandom of our dreams.
The 2020 “ghost season” is a rare pause for the juggernaut of AFL; a chance to look deep within, connect, and raise a more beautiful fandom from the ashes.
