Alex Lloyd has reconstructed his song ‘Coming Home’ as ‘Coming Home (To Richmond)’ for the Richmond Football Club in Melbourne.

The Richmond Football Club will use the song as their anthem for 2014.

“Having been a fan and lifelong supporter of the Australian sporting industry, I am exceptionally proud & overwhelmed to have been asked to recreate one of my songs for Richmond Football Club & look forward to cheering on the tigers both on stage and on the sidelines throughout 2014,” Lloyd said in a statement.

“We are thrilled to be able to work with an artist of the calibre of Alex Lloyd, whose original Coming Home song resonates strongly with our themes for the 2014 season,” said Richmond CEO Brendon Gale.
“It’s a unique opportunity for our Club to have our own words attached to an iconic Australian song, and we hope all of our fans enjoy the end result.

Alex Lloyd is a four times ARIA Award winner and has sold over 700,000 albums in Australia.

A portion of proceeds from the sale of the song will go towards the Richmond club’s preferred charity partner The Alannah and Madeline Foundation.

‘Coming Home (to Richmond) is available now on iTunes:
