An evening with former AFL star Anthony Koutoufides will help set the mood for the upcoming Far West Football League season.

The Carlton premiership winner will be at the Thevenard Sports and Community Centre on Friday, March 23 to talk about his life and career in the sport.

Koutoufides will tell his journey from growing up in an ethnic family who did not understand football, its culture or why their son would want to play this ‘foreign’ game, through to his successful career.

Promoter Anthony Lamond said Koutoufides had a story worth telling.

“His story is moving, funny and very entertaining and his audience will be intrigued on what they will learn next,” he said.

Mr Lamond said it was a great way to get ready for the new football season in the Ceduna region.

Dinner will be available before the show from 6pm, for an 8pm start.

There will be signed AFL jumpers from various clubs, including Carlton, Adelaide and Port Adelaide, which will be up for auction on the evening, with part of the proceeds going to the Thevenard Football Club.

An AFL Hall of Fame inductee, Koutoufides kicked 226 goals in 278 games across 16 seasons for Carlton, in addition to lifting the trophy in 1995.

Tickets for the show will cost $20 per person.
