Gippsland League finals venues

THE Gippsland League has announced the venues for its 2015 finals series.

The six finals will be evenly shared between three grounds, with Traralgon Recreation Reserve hosting the season decider on Saturday, 26 September.

The first semi-final will also be played at Traralgon, with the qualifying final and second semi-final to be played at Moe’s Ted Summerton Reserve.

Morwell Recreation Reserve will host the elimination and preliminary finals.

Gippsland League chair Greg Maidment said the board adhered to the current policy when it came to selecting finals venues and was looking forward to a competitive finals series.

“The centralised system was designed to equalise travel between competing teams and attract bigger crowds and it seems to work well,” Maidment said.

“We’re in the second year of a three-year rotation and it was Traralgon’s turn to host the grand final, so we’re very comfortable with the decision.”
