The walls of Napier Street have never looked so good! 

Many of our members who have visited the Windy Hill Fitness Centre recently, have spotted the brand new artwork on the wall next to the facility… And for Essendon Football Club supporters, it is a sight to see! The wall now presents the Essendon community with a huge portrait of none other than Sam Draper himself. Ask any fan and they would tell you that it wouldn’t be right if the artwork didn’t include his iconic 2022 Goal of the Year celebration.

Along with the snapshot of his celebration, the wall features:

  • Bombers icon
  • Essendon Football Clubs logo
  • Windy Hill flag
  • Red and Black flag
  • Hot meat pie
  • MCG
  • A range of Tradie items – underwear, deodorant.

The mural also features a QR Code that redirects you to an instagram filter where you can trade your face with Sam Draper. The filter also provides you with a discount code! This incredible artwork was designed and painted by talented Melbourne artists Jack and Josh. The mural comes as a result of the extended 4-year partnership between the Essendon Football Club and Australian brand Tradie.

Tradie first partnered with the Essendon Football Club ahead of the 2022 season, as the club’s official underwear, deodorant and body wash partner. The brand will feature on the players training and playing shorts until the end of the 2026 AFL Premiership Season.
