2011 NAB AFL Under 18s fixture

May 4, 2011 9:18 AM

THE 2011 NAB AFL Under 18 Championships fixture has been confirmed.

Matches will be played throughout Australia over a seven-week period commencing on Sunday May 29 at TIO Stadium in Darwin.

The final Division One matches, to be played at 5.35pm and 7.35pm (eastern standard time) on Wednesday July 6 at Etihad Stadium, will be broadcast live on Fox Sports.

AFL National Talent Manager Kevin Sheehan said the later broadcast would be a fantastic opportunity for football fans to see the players of the future.

“For the first time we will play the final round of Division One in the early evening to make the matches more accessible on Fox Sports. Many of the Under 18 players will be playing AFL football this time next year. I encourage everyone to either see a game live or watch the broadcast,” Mr Sheehan said.

Twenty-three players from last year’s championships have already debuted in AFL including; Dyson Heppell (Vic Country / Essendon), Jack Darling (Western Australia / West Coast Eagles ), Thomas Liberatore (Vic Metro / Western Bulldogs), Andrew Gaff (Vic Metro / West Coast Eagles) and Reece Conca (Western Australia / Richmond).
