2017 V/Line Cup umpiring panel announced

42 of the best up-and-coming community umpires from across Victoria will put their skills to the test this month, after being selected for the 2017 V/Line Cup Umpiring Panel.

18 Boundary, 15 Field and nine Goal umpires hailing from 16 different umping groups have been chosen to don the green representative umpires uniform as they prepare to adjudicate some of the best young regional talent in Victoria.

Of the 42 V/Line Umpire Academy members selected, AFL Barwon Umpires Geelong and AFL North East Border Umpiring boast the most representatives with six selections, while Southern Umpires Association and Bendigo Umpires Association had five representatives each.

Each of the 42 umpires selected to take part in the 2017 V/Line Cup have been carefully chosen from a pool of over 450 participants in the V/Line Umpire Academy – a program designed to develop and mentor talented up-and-coming umpires across Victoria.

Held in the City of LaTrobe from September 25-28, the V/Line Cup is designed to provide opportunities for young male and female footballers to test themselves against the best in their age group across country Victoria.

The four-day carnival will also serve as a stage for many players to progress to AFL Victoria’s mainstream talent pathway, the TAC Cup and TAC Cup Girls’ competitions and provides important development pathways for members of the V/Line Umpire Academy.
