AFL grand final: Abra Bol hits up Bonds for free underwear after Optus Stadium pitch invasion stunt

The man charged over Saturday’s grand final pitch invasion is now asking for another handout.

Abra Bol could be slugged as much as $12,000 and be locked out of Optus Stadium for three years after he shed everything but his holey underwear and sneakers before darting onto the playing surface during the three-quarter time break of Melbourne’s win over the Western Bulldogs.

It was revealed yesterday that the 22-year-old was chasing donations from strangers to help cover the big fine.

And now he’s looking for another freebie – underwear.

Mr Bol — the cousin of West Australian Olympic sensation Peter Bol — engaged in a chat with Bonds Australia on Instagram, hitting them up for a replacement for his holey jocks.

A big rip left part of Mr Bol’s backside exposed to the 60,000 spectators in the stadium and the millions more watching the broadcast at home and bars around the country.

“Looks like you might need some new undies,” Bonds told him in a message shared by Mr Bol on Instagram.

“Definitely do,” he replied, before hitting them up for some.

“Can you guys supply me with some new undies, please?”

Mr Bol, who shared the exchange as an Instagram story, told his more than 6,700 followers: “Don’t be surprised if you see me on the next Bonds advertisement.”

Bonds is yet to respond to questions from PerthNow centred on whether they plan on offering Mr Bol new jocks and if they’re lining him up for a gig as a model.

It is understood Mr Bol jumped from the public seating area, over permanent fencing, onto the field during Melbourne’s drought-breaking premiership win.

The streaker has been busy on social media since his stunt at the weekend, sharing countless headlines, memes and photos which emerged from his run.

In another Instagram story he asked how much he could sell his bin-worthy underwear for.

And he may well be needing that cash soon, given the financial penalty staring him down and the fact a GoFundMe page set up to help pay for that has raised just $1100 of the $12,000 target.

An Optus Stadium spokeswoman said yesterday that the venue would assist WA Police with its investigation and complete their own “to get a full and accurate understanding of the incident”.


“This kind of offence is serious — not to mention stupid and dangerous — and as such it rightly attracts a significant fine of up to $12,000 and the likelihood of a significant ban from all events at Optus Stadium,” she said.

Mr Bol, who will face Perth Magistrates Court on October 5 charged with trespass, is hardly the first person aiming to make the most of a pitch invasion stunt at a major sporting event.

Kinsey Wolanski was fined $24,000 for streaking at the 2019 Champions League final to promote her boyfriend’s X-rated prank website but came out of it with millions in ad revenue and an avalanche of new social media followers.

A month later Wolanski’s boyfriend set his own mother the task of invading the pitch during the cricket world cup final at Lord’s.

Elena Zdorovetskiy wore the same revealing outfit as Wolanski but was cut off at the boundary by stewards, who dragged her away without interrupting the match.

Earlier this year the European Championships were brought to a halt by a scantily-clad pitch invader promoting cryptocurrency.

Her outfit included a skimpy bodysuit — emblazoned with the crypto’s branding — and hot pants.

Fans were angered however after cameras cut away from her, despite broadcasters lingering over Christian Eriksen as he battled a mid-match health scare earlier in the tournament.
