Goulburn North East Football Association has confirmed the league and draw structure for the upcoming season.
The association will run seven leagues with between six and eight clubs in each competition.
Competitions will run for 21 weeks.
Six teams will once again contest the Regional Premier League, with Kyabram Phoenix coming into replace last year’s runners-up Shepparton and starts on Sunday with two games at McEwen Reserve.
Kyabram will take on Cobram Victory in its RPL debut at 3
The first five rounds of RPL fixtures will have games hat the same venue, which GNEFA president Frank Trimboli said would help to pool resources.
‘‘With the Goulburn Valley Suns coming on board, we’ve had a bit of a reduction of players and there are a few holes, but we’re just improvising with what we’ve got,’’ Trimboli said.
‘‘The idea behind sharing the games around the clubs is just about consolidating what we’ve got, plus it will help hosting clubs with bigger attendances and referees as well.’’
Two sets of fixtures were drawn ahead of the new season, with competitions with six teams drawn so that teams play each other three times, starting five weeks earlier than the competitions that have more than six.
Along with the RPL, the boys’ under-17s and girls’ under-16s also have six teams, and will start this weekend.
The under-17s will play at McEwen Reserve as well, starting at 9
The girls’ under-16s competition was also meant to start this weekend, but the first round has been postponed with Shepparton South and Coram playing in other tournaments.
The other four leagues — under-12 and 14 boys, open women and division-two men — will start on May 4.
Shepparton United, Shepparton South and Cobram are the three clubs to have teams in all seven competitions, while the under-12 and 14s boys’ competitions are the two competitions with teams from all eight GNEFA clubs.
