THE SYDNEY Swans men’s team are set for a return to Coffs Harbour in late January.

The Swans will be in Coffs Harbour from Sunday, 28 January to Wednesday, 31 January for a pre-season training and community camp.

The club will also hold an intra-club practice match which will be open to spectators.

The Swans team will take part in community and leadership activities, with a kids clinic and signing session on Monday, 29 January at the C.ex Coffs International Stadium.

It will be the first time since 2019 that the Swans men’s team has visited Coffs Harbour.

Community Football and Competition Manager for Northern NSW, Brad Greenshields, said it would be a great chance for the Coffs community to see AFL players in full flight.

“I think they will get to see just how good these players are, and just the elite level, just how fit they are, just how fast they move and the skills that they have when they are trying to move the ball,” he said.

“It’s a real eye opener to see them in that environment.

“It’s fantastic that the Sydney Swans see Coffs Harbour as a bit of a second home, and it really wasn’t that hard for them to choose Coffs Harbour as a venue for this camp.”

The Sydney Swans are coming off a 2023 season in which they finished eighth on the ladder, and lost their elimination final to Carlton.
