WorkSafe AFL Victoria Country’s premier junior regional championships, the V/Line Cup, is set to be bigger and better this year with AFL Goulburn Murray and Greater Shepparton City Council selected to host the 2019 V/Line Cup.
Now in its sixteenth year as the official naming rights partner of the carnival, V/Line has contributed extensively in providing the opportunity for young players to challenge themselves against the best in their age group across regional Victoria.
In 2019, the V/Line Cup has grown to include 14 Under 15 Boys and eight Under 15 Girls teams, with more than 550 participants expected to flock the Greater Shepparton City Council area when the four-day carnival kicks off on September 23-26.
For many competing at these championships, the V/Line Cup will be a steppingstone to AFL Victoria’s mainstream talent pathway, the NAB League and NAB League Girls competitions.
In addition, the V/Line Cup also provides an important development pathway for young umpires, with all field umpires at the Championships members of V/Line Umpire Academy.
