Following the success of the inaugural LVFNL Indigenous match between Maiden Gully YCW and Marong, it will now be held every year.
The idea for the match came from Maiden Gully footballer Mason James.
"I was really happy to see how the night went" James said.
"Beforehand I had envisioned how the Indigenous match would unfold, but if you times it by ten, that's how it went - it was unbelievable."
MGYCW FNC president Chris Garlick said the match instilled beneficial cultures within the clubs.
"When Mason came to us with the initiative we asked the LVFNL board for its support and Darren Turnbull from Marong leaned across the table and said he wanted to be the club we held the match with," Garlick said.
"This isn't a one-off, this will now be ongoing between the two clubs."
Footballers and netballers from both clubs played the match donned in custom jerseys designed by James and Stephen Korp.
Marong FNC president Darren Turnbull wanted to see many Indigenous matches played in the future.
"The moment I heard about it, I didn't want it just to be a one-off event, both clubs wanted this to happen as an annual event," Turnbull said.
"We want to see it get bigger and better every year."
The match was supported by both BDAC and Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation.
The match started with a Welcome to Country, performed by Dja Dja Wurrung member Mick Bourke.

Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation chief executive officer Rodney Carter was pleased to see Indigenous culture celebrated within the LVFNL.
"The Dja Dja Wurrung increasingly are getting respect and recognition as the first people of central Victoria and we support the league's vision to highlight Indigenous culture," Carter said.
"This is a defining thing around forming a new Australian identity... this is an example of the people themselves wanting to better understand the country's history - which not all of it was nice for certain people.
"But now we are going to define who we are going forward and we are going to be tolerant and have better values.
"That is why things such as the Indigenous match are so significant."
The Good Friday Indigenous match between Maiden Gully YCW Eagles and Marong Panthers went down to the final siren.
A behind by Eagles' coach and player Wayne Mitrovic got the team over the line for its first win of the 2019 Loddon Valley Football Netball League season.
FINAL SCORE: Eagles: 12.9 (81) Panthers: 11.14 (80)
