Ballarat Red Devils' home game countdown continues

BALLARAT Red Devils are just six days away from making their first NPLV appearance at their new multi-million dollar home in Morshead Park.

The Reds will face might of powerhouse South Melbourne on Saturday.

This will be the first game played on the international standard pitch - the centre hub of the Ballarat Regional Football Facility.

While the main pitch and a second synthetic ground are ready for play, the facility is still some months away from being fully completed as fitting out the first floor of clubrooms and administrative hub continues, a grandstand is still to be constructed, and other public areas, fencing, car parks and main entrance are yet to take shape.

A temporary grandstand will be put in place for Saturday's game.
