The Keilor Cup tournament is set to kick off this Thursday night, with more than 200 teams registered for this year’s blockbuster event.

The tournament will have boys and girls teams from throughout Victoria compete in divisions from Under 7’s to Under 13’s for their chance to be crowned champions.

The games will start on Thursday night and are played in a knock-out style competition with finals set to be held on Sunday, October 1.

Vice president Nicole Camilleri said this year has the most number of teams playing in the tournament’s history. There are more than 2300 participants registered to play, and a crowd of more than 8000 people are expected to attend over the four days.

“We have teams coming from as far as Phillip Island and Albury. It’s fantastic to see that we have nearly 40 girls teams registered this year, double the amount from last year,” she said.

Camilleri said everyone is invited to come down and enjoy the tournament, with 2023 marking its 23rd year of bringing excitement to the community.

“The Keilor Cup is completely organised and executed by volunteers. From line marking grounds, scheduling fixtures, food and drink services, equipment set up, marshalling, score updates, presentations, it’s all done by the hardworking committee and club volunteers. We are extremely proud of this achievement and can’t be more thankful to the wonderful volunteers that work tirelessly to make our tournament one of the best in Victoria,” she said.
