Door opens for Collingwood return
Tuesday 22 January 2013
The Collingwood Football Club will soon decide where their players will spend their mid-season break, and it appears there is a good chance the AFL’s biggest club could return to Port Douglas.
A Collingwood spokesperson told The Newsport the players enjoyed their Port experience in 2012 which saw hundreds of fans descend on the Port Douglas Sports Complex to watch the team train in the June sunshine.
The Club’s Football Manage Geoff Walsh is expected to make the decision in February.
The Richmond Football Club also travelled to Cairns for a training camp in 2012, sparking hopes the region could become a regular destination for elite sporting clubs on a break from their regular season.
