Werribee will again be looking for a strong Towards Zero Unity Cup showing when its teams step out on Royal Park’s Ransford Oval on Sunday.
Having taken out last year’s Division 2 title to claim the club’s third title in four years, the boys’ team will this year test themselves by stepping up to the Division 1 ranks, while the girls’ side will be looking to go one better after finishing runners-up in 2017.
Now in its 11th year, the Unity Cup celebrates Victoria’s rich cultural diversity by using Australian rules football to bring together a host of different multicultural communities.
More than 300 male and female participants aged 15-22 will take part in this year’s edition, which will again take the format of a round-robin AFL 9s competition.
Werribee has now fielded teams in the Unity Cup for six years and will again be the only VFL club represented at this year’s event, highlighting its strong commitment to community engagement.
The Unity Cup runs from 9am to 4pm and will feature a range of family-friendly activities for spectators, which include a DJ, football inflatables, and food trucks.
