Champions league Email

Post by Mickyj on Thu Dec 16, 2010 8:56 pm

Please see below for the joint media release sent by the Woodville West Torrens Football Club yesterday regarding the SANFL Champions League Cup competition.

The Clubs represented by the undersigned have all given considerable thought to the proposed Champions League Cup concept and all agree that it could offer an exciting opportunity for our clubs and players on the national stage.

There are however, a number of unresolved issues. Regrettably, the current version of the concept does not offer the financial incentive required to participate in the competition. It is our unanimous view that the cost of participating would not be covered by the prize money currently on offer, and would therefore ultimately represent a new cost to our Clubs.

In addition, the proposed draw requires the successful teams to play up to an additional four games scheduled within the current home and away season, thus forfeiting all of their scheduled byes in the lead up to the major round of the SANFL.

This is a key point. Simply, participation would severely test the resilience and depth of our team’s playing resources, and our volunteer reserves. Without considerable financial upside, the opportunity cost of reducing our focus and competitiveness within the SANFL competition cannot be justified.

Further, the clubs are unable to commit without information regarding sponsorship, given we are all contractually obliged to play in our SANFL competition guernsey’s. We are advised this is not possible.

As several other logistical and financial considerations also remain unresolved, the Central District, Norwood, Woodville West Torrens, Glenelg and Sturt Football Clubs have decided that they are unable to accept the invitation from the SANFL to participate in the proposed Champions League Cup in its current format.

Dominic Shepley (CEO – NFC)

Kurt Slaven (Pres – WWTFC)

Rob Nelson (CEO – GFC)

Matt Benson (CEO – SFC)



Kind Regards

Supposedly the North Adelaide players love this idea. Looking at it from our players point of view, do they want to participate in it?

Most likely, yes that is the case, zest. But hey, North are always right, and we are always wrong. Wink
