Kardinia Park Stadium Trust will be the major supporter of the Australian first, AFL Barwon All Abilities Football Netball League in 2023.
The inaugural season of the Football and Netball League will kick off on Saturday April 29th with a double header on GMHBA Stadium in a major coup for the competition.
The opening round matches will kick off at 4pm and 6pm, with an All Abilities Auskick session between the games.
This will provide the opportunity for players who have never played a competitive game of football before, to start their career off at the Barwon Region’s Premier sports precinct.
Kardinia Park Stadium Trust CEO Gerard Griffin was quoted.
“As part of our ongoing commitment to provide unique opportunities for participation and connection, we are thrilled to be hosting the opening round of the AFL Barwon All-Abilities Football Netball League on GMHBA Stadium. Kardinia Park strives to be truly inclusive, embrace diversity and support our local community.”
AFL Barwon Region General Manager, Edward Wilson, was quoted.
“We’re extremely appreciative of Kardinia Park’s endorsement of the inaugural AFL Barwon All Abilities Football Netball League. This league has immense potential for growth and development in the years ahead and with the support of partners including Kardinia Park, this league will receive the exposure and value it deserves. We’re thankful for Kardinia Park’s enthusiasm and support, and we’re equally grateful in continuing a strong relationship with Kardinia Park into the future”.
