Good Friday football is back, and the Canberra Demons will take centre stage alongside reigning premiers Southport in Round 3 of the 2019 NEAFL season.
The NEAFL today confirmed the news, with the game taking place at 2.00pm at Football Park (Phillip Oval) on April the 19th next year.
General Manager Football, Shaun Young welcomed the opportunity to play in next year’s Good Friday marquee fixture.
“The Club is extremely pleased to once again be scheduled on Good Friday against Southport, and we thank Southport for being a willing participant," Young said.
“We are starting to build a healthy rivalry with Southport and look forward to being able to turn the tables on the result of the same fixture as last year."
“The scheduling of this match on Good Friday provides the opportunity to continually promote the Canberra Demons program and the NEAFL competition given there is no other local football played on this weekend.”
The full 2019 NEAFL fixture will be released on Friday, November 30.
