The WACFL confirmed dates for all 2023 country week football carnivals on Tuesday, with minimal change from last year. As was the case in 2022, the CBH Group colts carnival will kick things off (July 6 and 7), while the seniors carnival (Nutrien Ag Solutions country football championships) runs between July 7-9. Should they record back-to-back division one senior titles, the SWFL will notch up their 25th senior country week championship triumph. SWFL senior coach Chris Kinninmont, who was crowned division one coach of the carnival last year, is planning to formulate a solid squad from Round 1. The biggest change will be in the Rio Tinto female football championships, which will be held on October 5 and 6 — more than 10 days after the SWFL women’s grand final. Last year, a number of Busselton women’s premiership players picked in the SWFL team had their post-game celebrations shortened due to the carnival being held less than a week after the decider.
