The inaugural Female Football Country Football Championships are almost here! This weekend five sides from country WA will converge on Anning Park in Cockburn to battle it out for the title of Female COuntry Champions for the first time.
Playing AFLW rules with 16 a side, this carnival has been introduced into the WACFL this year to provide an opportunity for our country women’s sides to showcase their talent at one venue in a carnival event.
Travelling from as far as the Pilbara, the teams are from all different leagues in the State. The Goldfields, Great Northern, Peel & South West will be the other teams playing over the weekend.
This carnival will become the third of its kind with the the CBH Group Colts and Landmark Country Football Championships to be held across the 11th to 14th of July.
Acting WACFL General Manager Brent Sheridan said it was a great opportunity and an exciting time for female football in the country.
“The female participation is growing rapidly in the country with some quality talent competitions. Introducing this competition allows us to showcase Country Football from a female point of view and provide an opportunity for the next generation of country footballers to represent their regions".
Bouncedown will commence at 12pm on Saturday with Pilbara taking on Peel.
