On the back of today’s State Government announcement around easing some restrictions, AFL Victoria’s position around training is that no sanctioned training should take place until further notice.
AFL Victoria will seek clarity from the State Government around what today’s announcement means for community football and be in contact in due course.
A number of considerations around health and safety protocols and insurance need to be worked through prior to any training being sanctioned.
AFL Victoria will provide a return to play protocol for community leagues and clubs once it is approved by the State Government.
The EDFL Board will meet tomorrow night to discuss further the announcements from the government and how it will impact the possibility of commencing a season for 2020. These discussions will be continued with Clubs at League Divisional meetings to be held on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
