Rochy’s season starts with Echuca
ROCHESTER will begin its 2019 season at home against cross town rivals Echuca.
The club will also be a part of a centerpiece game in round 14, playing Kyabram in a Sunday match.
The new GVL fixture was released yesterday, with GOTAFE GVL chair David Roff pleased with the fixture and the way clubs have been able to negotiate the scheduling.
“Many of our clubs like to create stand-alone games in the fixture, whether that be night games or Sunday games. These games typically lead to larger gates and greater income opportunities which we will see again in 2019,’’ Roff mentioned.
‘‘The major focus for clubs was the request for more ‘rivalry rounds’ during the year which will be beneficial for gates and exciting for football and netball games across our league.’’
