Footy tipping season begins

The Leader’s fourth AFL footy tipping competition kicks off next week with our new and old guest tipsters ready to lock heads over the 2019 AFL season.

For this year’s competition, the prize pool has risen to $4,500 with the likelihood of winning a prize very high.

The Leader has teamed up with Phil Hoffmann Travel Barossa Valley, who donated a $1,000 travel voucher to form the first prize.
