Colac’s Central Reserve has missed out on hosting a second AFL pre-season match despite the success of this year’s event.
The AFL released its fixture for next year’s JLT Community Series today, with Colac missing out on another match.
Port Pirie in South Australia, Lismore in New South Wales, and Werribee in Victoria will host pre-season fixtures for the first time.
Colac hosted a clash between Geelong and Essendon in March, which attracted a crowd of 9115 people, the biggest crowd of this year’s series.
The number eclipsed the crowd of 8098 at Carlton’s Ikon Park for a match between Carlton and St Kilda in February, and 7737 for Sunday’s clash between Fremantle and West Coast at Joondaloop in Western Australia.
