VAFA Tour UK & Ireland in October 2017!

The Victorian Amateur Football Association (VAFA) will be touring the UK & Ireland in 2017 with mutliple games planned throughout their journey.

The VAFA traditionally tour every 2 years and during their last tour in 2015 played against a London All-Stars side in their final hit-out of their 3-week tour.

This year, VAFA return to Europe to play four matches over 18-days with games scheduled against Irish county sides, Bishoptown, Tuam Stars and Donaghmore Ashbourne before taking on a London All-Stars side in London on Sunday October 15th. Full details on this match and after-party to be released soon.

The touring squad for VAFA has been named and is captained by Old Geelong midfielder, George Burbury, with Alexander Armstrong of Old Melburnians named as his deputy.

The London All-Stars squad is in the process of being finalised with a large expression of interest received. Those at London All-Stars HQ are rumoured to be quietly confident with the squad that is assembling and are keeping their cards close to their chest in the hope of turning around a 10+ goal deficit from their 2015 hit-out.
