The Victorian Blind Football League will launch in 2019, providing opportunities for footballers with blindness and low vision to play Australian Rules football at a competitive level.
The sport of AFL Blind is a modified version of Australian Football played in an indoor football field. The Victorian Blind Football League provides an environment that promotes fitness, fun, friendship and a sense of belonging, enhancing life skills, developing self-esteem, confidence and improved health.
The League is a structured Victorian football competition for males and females aged 14 and over. The inaugural season will feature a four team, nine-round competition with finals, with Hawthorn Football Club and St Kilda Football Club on board.
The inaugural season kicks off on Saturday, 6 July from 10am at Action Indoor Sports – Tullamarine.
