Finals venues announced for SEFNL

The South East Football Netball League’s showpiece event of the season will return to the City of Casey for the first time since 2014 after the announcement of Berwick’s Edwin Flack Reserve as the host venue for this year’s SEFNL grand final.

Officer’s Starling Road hosted the biggest day on the football and netball calendar in 2015-16, before Beaconsfield’s Holm Park Reserve had its first taste of hosting the big dance last year.

The SEFNL Board made its decision on the host venue for the grand final after closely examining bids from Beaconsfield, Berwick and Pakenham.

This will be the last season of SEFNL, with the eight existing clubs set to build new and exciting rivalries after transferring to different leagues next year.

SEFNL Chairman Ryan Ford said the Board was spoilt for choice when considering its options for grand final day, which will take place on Saturday 15 September.

“We were in such a fortunate position to have three great venues, Beaconsfield, Berwick and Pakenham, put forward as options for this year’s final series,” Ford said.  

“The Board would like to thank the clubs for their outstanding submissions. We were spoilt for choice which was comforting, but it made it challenging when coming to a final decision.”

The three venues will host two days each across the four-week carnival of sport, which begins with the qualifying final to be held at Holm Park Reserve on Saturday 25 August.

One of the big highlights of this year’s finals series will take place at Holm Park Reserve on Saturday 1 September, with the SEFNL second semi-final day to be complemented with the playing of the South Eastern Women’s Football (SEWF) grand finals.

The three SEWF grand finals, in Divisions 1, 2 and 3, will be held on oval two and run simultaneously with the men’s semi-final action on oval one.

Venues for the semi-finals and preliminary finals for SEWF will be announced shortly.
