President Martin Carter has provided a club update following the announcement of a restructured VFL competition for season 2021.
To our staff, players, sponsors, members, volunteers and supporters.
From Martin Carter - President
Hope you are safe and well. You will have seen, read or heard recently the talk regarding the future structure of the VFL competition. On behalf of the board I would like to fill you in on a few of the details from our perspective.
“We will be playing in what is likely to be an expanded VFL competition. Clubs in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland are all seriously considering participating in the expanded competition.
The final make up of the participants will not be finalised until sometime around October/November given AFL priorities, and a likely expressions of interest and an invitation process.
The priorities of our club continue to be the health and well being of the extended Werribee Football Club family, the need to maximise limited revenue opportunities in order to ensure sustainable success and the continued development and success of our football club within the VFL.
We are working intimately with the AFL to ensure that the new competition will be a most competitive environment, one that we have the capacity to thrive in given the economic landscape.
Together with other VFL clubs we will continue to hold regular meetings with the AFL and keep you apprised of the developments.
