AFL Victoria quashes interleague rumours

Rumours that interleague football is under threat have been quashed with AFL Victoria stating that there has been “no decision” made on the future of statewide representative football.

For the past four years, 30 leagues around the state, including the Maryborough Castlemaine District Football Netball League (MCDFNL), have opted to participate in the annual AFL Victoria Community Champion- ships.

Each year, the championships see clashes between similarly ranked leagues around the state in the fight for a championship title and the chance to improve its state ranking.

Amid rumours that its interleague program could be under threat, AFL Victoria released a statement to The Advertiser stating that there has been “no decision” made regarding inter- league and that rather it is seeking feedback from its leagues.

“AFL Victoria is in the process of a review of representative football and has given leagues and clubs the opportunity to provide feedback,” the statement said.

“No decision has been made on the future of representative football at this stage.”
