Rumour has it that this scoreboard was once at Punt Road, Richmond. If so, it has some history. I didn’t have much time to follow-up the rumour, let alone take some photographs. I managed a quick squizz inside in-between the two FIDA games there on Sunday 17 May.

For a match report of the senior FIDA game see our partner site, australianrules, founded and edited by the esteemed Les Everett.

Scoreboard Pressure first reported on Ringwood in 2013, via a dedicated FIDA executive. It was a treat to visit the ground myself. Especially on a sunny late autumn day.

 FIDA is the Football Integration Development Association, a league for players with intellectual disabilities.

For Punt Road scoreboards (and much more about the Tigers’ home ground), take a few minutes to look at The Holy Boot’s letter of love to the Punt Road ground.
