Coffs confirmed for AFL showdown

COFFS Harbour will play host to the Sydney Swans and Brisbane Lions as part of the AFL's pre-season NAB Challenge.

The Swans will take on the Lions under lights at C.ex Coffs International Stadium on Friday, March 6.

The stadium last hosted an AFL game in 2011 when a crowd of 4873 watched St Kilda take on Sydney.

The Swans have confirmed they will again run AFL community camps in Coffs Harbour in early 2015 and 2016.

"The Swans have always enjoyed a strong connection with Coffs Harbour and through our QBE Sydney Swans Coffs Harbour Academy, pre-season training and community camps and now another NAB Challenge match in the city, that connection only grows stronger," Swans chief executive Andrew Ireland said.

Tickets go on sale in early 2015.
