The Peel Football and Netball League will be spreading the message of road safety at every turn this weekend as it embraces the Belt Up program.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Belt Up initiative’s partnership with the WA Country Football League, with the PFNL using round seven on its fixture to inform players, officials and patrons about the importance of road safety.
The PFNL will hold pre-game ceremonies to mark the occasion, and will also give out specialised game balls to the best-on-ground for every league game.
All league footballs and player uniforms will carry the Belt Up logo for the round.
WACFL general manager Joe Georgiades was hopeful this weekend’s fixtures would help make a change to driving behaviour on country roads.
“Every year we hear of players who are injured or lose their lives on country roads and the devastation this causes to our clubs is significant,” he said.
