Country Champs Launch
Sunday 5 June 2022
After cancelling the 2020 and 2021 events, the Country Champs was finally able to take place in 2022. The Launch Event was held a week prior – an opportunity to acknowledge event sponsors and the players selected for the Geelong rep teams who were presented with their playing kits.
Christine Cousins MP spoke to the support of the State Government and Councillors Jim Mason, Anthony Aitken and Kylie Grzybek attended on behalf of City of Greater Geelong. Steve Horvat brought along the A-league trophy recently won by Western United and addressed the players.
After having to pull the pin only 2 weeks out from the planned 2021 event, it was a great opportunity for the Organising Committee to celebrate our planning and efforts over the last 3 years.
