Pacific Werribee will host a Big Footy weekend this Saturday and Sunday to launch its partnerships with Werribee Football Club and the Western Region Football League.

On Saturday, visitors to the shopping centre will be able to sign up as members of the Werribee Football Club and participating WRFL clubs.

There will be hand-ball sessions with Werribee players and opportunities to test kicking skills on the Big Footy Weekend’s virtual Kick Off machine.

Club merchandise will be given away throughout the day and Pacific Werribee’s retailers will provide free party pies, hot dogs, milkshakes and donuts.

On Sunday, the AFL Store at Pacific Werribee will host a day of activities, including meet-and-greets with players such as the Western Bulldogs’ Dale Morris.

The day will also feature family activities, the chance to meet the AFL’s Sherrin mascot, hand-ball target competitions, face-painting and giveaways.
