Welcome to our new ambassador, Bruce Djite, Australian professional footballer who currently plays for Hyundai A-League club Adelaide United.
All Together Now is proud to welcome Bruce as a new ambassador in its fight to erasing racism in Australia. Racism happens regularly in sport in general and in football in particular – in Europe, FIFA has taken serious actions to try to prevent it from happening.
Born in Washington D.C. (US), Bruce moved to Sydney when he was three years old. His father, a renowned Professor at the University of Western Sydney, was born in Ivory Coast and his mother in Togo. Coming from a multilingual family and being a rising star in the soccer world, Bruce decided to support All Together Now to take a stand against racism.
“Racism is an issue that I am very passionate about. It’s important for myself to speak out about racism and try to educate people on the immeasurable benefits diversity and multiculturalism bring to our society.”
Bruce has represented the Australian national team (Socceroos) on nine occasions playing in Asian Cup and World Cup qualifiers. He’s also played abroad for clubs in Turkey and China. He currently plays in the A-League for Adelaide United F.C. and has played in three AFC Champions League campaigns with the club.
“Whether it be in the workplace, the community, one’s family or just amongst friends, I hope to bring more awareness to All Together Now and hopefully together, we can all make a difference and have a positive impact on society by eradicating racism.”
