AFL Final Invitation Sent to SES Volunteers
AFL preliminary final will be attended by Weary State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers, since they have been sent with invitations to be at the event, which is because they have made remarkable contributions in containing floodwaters across Victoria.
The SES started shutting down control centers in this week after river flows began receding all around the state.
The AFL and the state Government are going to hand out 1000 tickets to SES volunteers in the local and metropolitan regions, as a gesture of thanks, so that they can see St. Klida battle it out with the Western Bulldogs.
AFL Chief Executive, Andrew Demetriou said that volunteers working with SES did an amazing job over the preceding couple of weeks when things were really out of hands.
So, they deserve to be at the spectacular game and enjoy their day, as told by him on Wednesday.
It is hoped that the day will offer the hardworking volunteers some respite and rejuvenate them from the tiring job they have done up to now.
The distribution of tickets is being coordinated between the league and the SES.
Around 80,000 people will likely be seen attending the game lined up for Saturday night at the MCG.
