Peel Football League manager Geoff Hiller said the games presented a great opportunity for the league.

“It’s good to be able to showcase our ovals and have the boys play at home,” he said.

The tournament will now be played across two weekends, one in June and another in July.

Peel’s first game will come in the form a four-quarter league match against reigning premiers and perennial powerhouses the South West Football League.

The match will be held at Hands Oval in Bunbury on Sunday, June 19.

The first games to be held in the Peel region will be on Friday, July 8 at Bendigo Bank Stadium, when Peel’s colts take on Great Southern and Regional Districts.

WA Country Football League general manager Joe Georgiades said the championship format had been changed to deliver several benefits to competing teams.

“Some of the key benefits of the changes include more involvement for country communities with games being played in the regions, ensuring the best players are available to represent their league and providing greater development opportunities,” he said.
