Harmony Cup ready to roll

The Harmony Cup will still go ahead this weekend after Glen Orden Football Club stepped up to the plate to host the day

The Cup was set to be held at Victoria Park on Sunday, but changes to the AFLW fixture meant that ground was no longer available.

After putting a call out to find a new host, Glen Orden happily obliged.

The Australian Football Harmony Cup is an amateur Australian rules football competition featuring teams drawn from Melbourne’s migrant communities.

The tournament is coordinated by Australian Football International. It was first held in 2004 in Melbourne around National Harmony Day.

Six men’s teams will compete this year for a spot in the final to be held at 5.10PM.

Druze Victoria, Ireland, Italy, Macedonia, Greece and New Zealand are the teams competing.

In the women’s New Zealand will play the Eastern Devils, who have stepped up to fill a void after the Ireland team had to withdraw.

Matches start at 10.00am.
