WRFL ANNOUNCE SENIOR FINALS VENUES

THE WRFL is pleased to announce its 2017 senior finals venues, with VU Whitten Oval again set to host the Division 1 Grand Final.

Burbank Oval (Williamstown) will also play a major role during the Senior Finals as the primary Division 1 venue.

In the absence of Avalon Airport Oval (Werribee), which is currently undergoing major redevelopment works, Burbank Oval will offer a premium facility for the WRFL’s showcase finals series.

Whilst Burbank Oval is unavailable for the first day of finals on Saturday, August 26, the venue is set to potentially host all other Division 1 finals until Division 1 Grand Final Day.

Hogans Road Reserve (Hoppers Crossing) will host the Division 2 lead-up finals, with Burbank Oval the venue for the Division 2 Grand Final.

The Division 3 Grand Final will be played at Hogans Road Reserve.

WRFL CEO Matthew Duck said the league was pleased to announce the senior finals venues in light of some facility challenges this year.

“Typically Avalon Airport Oval would be used quite heavily for senior finals, and with that off-limits this year it did provide a challenge,” he said.

“There was also some complexity in regards to accessing certain venues post-August, and we’ve sought to work through that.”

Duck said that whilst ideally the league would play each Under-19’s final as a precursor to Division 1 finals, it could not be achieved this year.

“There’s a stipulation that only two matches be held on Burbank Oval on any one day, and we understand the intention behind that, therefore the Under 19s matches will largely coincide with the Division 2 finals until Division 1 Grand Final Day at VU Whitten Oval,” he said.

The Division 1 Grand Final Day will fall on either Saturday September 16 or Sunday September 17, pending confirmation with the Western Bulldogs around its potential finals commitments.

This confirmation is expected to be provided and in-turn announced later this month.
