EARLIER: Wangaratta’s Norm Minns Oval is set to be revealed as the venue for the 2018 Ovens and Murray Football-Netball League grand final.
The O and M board of directors met overnight and it’s understood Wangaratta Magpies’ bid to host the match this year has been given the tick of approval.
An official announcement will be made at 10am today at the SS&A Club.
Wangaratta’s premier venue last hosted the grand final in 1994 when Wangaratta Rovers defeated Wodonga to complete back-to-back flags.
As part of the successful Wangaratta bid to be announced this morning, Wangaratta Rovers will be offered the chance to assist with catering for the grand final which could attract a crowd of 8000 people.
More to come.
