2017 AFL Champions, the Tigers, training in Cardinia Shire

Published: 12 December 2017

Richmond Football Club will be visiting Beaconsfield’s Holm Park Recreation Reserve for Christmas in Cardinia with an open training session from 5pm on Tuesday 19 December 2017.

In addition, this free event will include merchandise and memberships sales, and attendees can purchase food and drink on-site, in support of the Beaconsfield Football Club.

Cardinia Shire Mayor Cr Collin Ross said the event is an affordable, family-friendly way for fans and local kids to meet the players face-to-face and see them put through their paces, without having to travel into the city.

“We’re thrilled to be welcoming the Tigers back to Cardinia for their pre-Christmas training session. It’s the perfect opportunity for families and fans to kick back and relax in the midst of the busy festive season,” said Cr Ross.

As part of the training visit, the team will be hosting junior football clinic for the kids. Early registrations are encouraged, as places are limited. Registrations for the junior football clinic can be made at https://richmondfc.formstack.com/forms/christmas_in_cardinia

Richmond CEO Brendon Gale said the Club has a strong presence in the shire.

“The players will train, selected players will sign autographs and the group will host a children’s clinic in what will be a family friendly evening at Holm Park Recreation Reserve.

“The Club partnered with Cardinia Shire Council in 2012 and we actively work together to bring the community together using football, through various programs, events and community engagement initiatives.”
