Football Skool hits record entries


One of the largest scale football participation events for Greater Shepparton has reached record entries for its 2019 competition.

Greater Shepparton City Council is excited to welcome an influx of visitors to the 2019 Australian Football Skool Championships (AFSC) who will be accommodating 287 teams, more than 3,000 participants and 7,500 visitors to the region this weekend.

Greater Shepparton City Council’s Director Sustainable Development, Geraldine Christou said, “The organisers should be proud of the long running event’s growth.’

“Greater Shepparton has hosted the major event for six years now and we value the long term partnership we have with the AFSC organisers and are thrilled to have worked collaboratively with them to see the event grow, and now spill over into Mooroopna,” Ms Christou said.

“Holding the event continues to enhance the region’s reputation as the leading sporting and event capital of regional Australia, as well as supporting Council’s plan to provide quality facilities to our community, and stimulating the economy through visitation and local spending.
