Latrobe Local News:
Footy fever ramping up for Saturday’s blockbuster clash
Latrobe City Council is hosting a JLT Community Series AFL match between Richmond and Collingwood this Saturday 11 March, at the Ted Summerton Reserve oval, Moe. And the excitement is building.
By Portal Admin - 7th March 2017 - Back to NewsLatrobe City Council’s mayor, Councillor Kellie O’Callaghan, said the match was more than a football fixture, it was a community event.
"Being able to host such a high profile match gives local fans a chance to immerse themselves in the excitement, skill and passion that elite sport elicits. The JLT Community Series is about connecting with grass roots fans, bringing the game to the regions," Cr O’Callaghan said.
"Our facilities here in Latrobe City are top quality and this game will no doubt see strong crowd numbers and a blockbuster game."
Cr O’Callaghan also urged the community to book tickets early.
"Tickets will be available at the gate but our strong preference is to book them in advance through Ticketek. Ticket holders should attend the South Street entrance. This will keep the turnstiles revolving and the queues to a minimum," Cr O’Callaghan said.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 concession, $5 for juniors (6 to 14 years) or $40 for families (two adults, and four children under 15). Tickets are available through Ticketek, www.ticketek.com.au or 132 849.
"There will also be traffic management in place around the ground. Arrive early and follow the signs for parking – there will be no parking at the Ted Summerton Reserve. The match starts at 1.10pm but gates will open at 11am.
"Let’s get behind this match and support the AFL players as they head into the full season. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday and a rare opportunity to see elite footballers in our own municipality," Cr O’Callaghan concluded.
There will be NO PUBLIC PARKING AT THE GROUND. The following locations have been made available for public parking:
Apex Park, Moe
Joe Tabuteau Reserve, Moe
