2017 AFL International Cup

This year's AFL International Cup will be played from 6 to 19 August and experienced umpire coaches/administrators Mark Volich and Glen Shilling have been appointed to oversee and manage the umpiring component for the International Cup.

They are seeking nominations from suitable qualified/accredited field, boundary and goal umpires for this fantastic experience. Field umpires must be currently Level 2 accredited whilst boundary and goal umpires must be Level 1 accredited as at 21 June 2017. They are also looking for umpire coaches who may be interested in doing some observing/providing feedback during the carnival, especially for the International Umpires who will be officiating.


Umpires will not be paid but will be supplied with a "commemorative" uniform to wear in their game and the lure of umpiring in a grand final at either MCG or Etihad Stadium on the final day is another incentive to nominate.

At this stage the fixture has not been finalized but it looks like 19 men's and 9 women's teams competing.

Find the Umpire Nomination Form HERE. They ask for all interested umpires complete the form and email it to Mark Volich no later than Wednesday 21 June and request that you advertise this opportunity throughout your umpiring groups via your league and umpiring group websites and any social media sites would be greatly appreciated.

They already have received umpire nominations from international and interstate umpires and expect a large response from Victorian umpires.
