EFL Umpires - AFL Auskick Program

Each year, our club is proud to have our up & coming young umpires represent us on the AFL stage in the half-time AFL Auskick games.

We have a strong tradition of quality young people participating in this exciting program and we know this year’s six umpires will continue that.

An indicator to the regard in which the EFL umpires are held in is the Round 1 appointments – all 6 umpires ran in the 3 blockbuster MCG games!

Carlton v Richmond – 90,000+ in the traditional season opener
James Basford & Caleb Collett

Collingwood v Geelong – 80,000+
Luke Dittmann & Luke Egan

Melbourne v Port Adelaide
