The Ovens and Murray Football Netball league has announced Wodonga's Martin Park as the venue to host the 2019 preliminary finals.
With Wodonga Bulldogs not in a position to play finals this season, OMFNL General Manager Sean Barrett said this was a contributing factor in the early announcement.
"The way the results fell in last year's finals meant we didn't end up showcasing a final in the city of Wodonga," Barrett said.

"It's exciting to be hosting the preliminary final at Martin Park and we're committed to delivering either the qualifying or second semi-final at Birallee Park in conjunction with Wodonga Raiders.
"It's fantastic to lock in the venue this early.
"It benefits the supporters planning to attend the event, the host club and the league delivering the event and the local council in managing its facilities."
The preliminary finals will be held on Sunday, September 15, with matches starting from 9:30am.
Just two rounds remain before finals commence.
