ADF Carnival to be held at Moorabbin

Australia

The St Kilda Football Club will host the 2012 Australian Defence Force AFL Carnival at Moorabbin Oval next week.  The ADF Carnival will see service men and women from the Army, Navy and Air Force play a round-robin competition for their respective titles.

Chief Executive Officer of the Saints, Michael Nettlefold said it was an honour for the Club to host the ADF at its traditional home ground, Moorabbin.

“In the lead up to ANZAC Day, it is fitting that we have an opportunity to support and recognise our service men and women.  Moorabbin is a fantastic ground and we’re very proud to see it utilised by the Defence Force,” said Michael Nettlefold.  “Moorabbin is a significant part of our Club’s rich history and hosting events like this will ensure it continues to play a role in the future of our great game.”

Australian Services Australian Football Association (ASAFA) Chairman Brigadier Matthew Hall said the national championship is the pinnacle of Service representation for ADF footballers.  “The carnival provides a great opportunity for players to represent their respective Service and the Australian Defence Force,” Brig Hall said.  “Spirited and fair competition is the hallmark of the championship and spectators are strongly encouraged to witness the high-quality action.”
