VFUA Mini Olympics - Paul Anderson Shield

VFUA 2020 Virtual Mini Olympics in honour of the late Paul Anderson

Former VFL boundary umpire and VFUA member Paul Anderson tragically passed away in 2001 after a brave battle against cancer. 

Every year since then, the VFUA together with assistance from the AFL have held a mini olympics each year to raise money for the Cancer Council. This pits each umpiring squad against each other in a battle to win the Paul Anderson Shield. 

Due to COVID-19 we are unable to hold this in a physical location. No problem - we are going to hold it virtually! Each week there will be a new challenge and the opportunity for each squad to earn points. 

To be eligible as an individual to submit a challenge, please donate at least $10 via this fundraising page.
