Independent report published into Gippsland football
AFL Victoria will consider recommendations by an independent report into Gippsland Football as part of its commitment to community football and its objective to strengthen the game in regional areas.
A focus on growing women’s football in the region and an alignment of junior/youth age bracket structure are among those recommendations considered.
The 98-page report also suggests amalgamating the Alberton Football Netball Competition into the Mid Gippsland Football Netball League competition to create a 15-club competition aimed at long-term league sustainability.
The report, prompted by AFL Victoria to focus on preserving football in Gippsland, contains 46 recommendations.
