GVL Selected for Country Round Match

The fixture for the 2018 Worksafe AFL Victoria Community Championships has been released today with the exciting news that the GOTAFE Goulburn Valley League will potentially be playing against the Ballarat FNL at the MCG on Saturday 19 May as the curtain raiser to the Essendon v Geelong Country Round blockbuster.

Whilst there are still a number of details to be finalised and the fixture needs final approval through both clubs and the AFL, the opportunity is now presented for our best players to represent their League in front of a massive crowd on the hallowed MCG turf.

GVL Chairman David Roff is excited at the opportunity.

“We would consider it a great recognition for the GVL and Ballarat to represent country footy as part of the AFL’s Country Game celebrations” he said.

“Interleague is very important to our League and the opportunity to represent the GVL is a prestigious honour for our players.  To play in this game will add another level for everyone involved.”

Details of possible U18 and netball fixture to follow as confirmed.
