The GIANTS will be hosting a number of blockbuster games in Canberra as part of the Centenary of Canberra celebrations.
The GIANTS will play four games at Manuka Oval including the first ever AFL game played under lights at the venue.
Andrew Barr, the Minister for sport in the ACT, is proud of the teams that represent Canberra and was on hand recently to welcome all of the regions sporting teams for an historic photo shoot at Manuka Oval. Canberra is celebrating its centenary in 2013 and teams will be wearing special one-off uniforms during one of their games next year.

Andrew Barr is encouraging everyone in Canberra to make sure they support their local teams and show the rest of Australia that the ACT is a great destination for elite sport.
GIANTS co-captain Phil Davis was excited to meet the sporting crew and is looking forward to the four games in Canberra in 2013.
"We are very proud to call Canberra the home of the GIANTS and all of the boys are looking forward to the games at Manuka in 2013, especially when we get to run out under lights against the Bombers in the NAB Cup"
"We always get great support in Canberra and the fans make us feel really welcome so its always something we look forward to"
The GWS GIANTS play their round 3 NAB Cup game at Manuka Oval against the Essendon Bombers on Friday 8th March with the game starting at 6:10pm
The GIANTS have a special membership package for the ACT which gives entry to the three AFL premiership games in 2013 with prices starting from as little as $80 for adults and $25 for children.
