AN UPDATE FROM AFL VICTORIA
To our Valued Football Community,
We hope you and your family had a safe and happy Easter at home this year, as we all play our part in supporting the Australian community and health system.
Without football on our fields, we have embraced the important role that football can still play in our lives. With the power of social media and technology, we have seen an overwhelming celebration of football on our small screens – including trick kicks, skills and drills, family footy at home and some ingenious training techniques in isolation.
We thank you for playing your part in flattening the curve, and we are optimistic that we will get our game underway at some stage, in some format later this year. Rest assured, the AFL and its State and Territory affiliates have a dedicated team of people working diligently to explore what this might look like for our clubs and communities.
Understandably, we are still uncertain about the exact date of commencement for our game, but we want to provide you with some certainty about the actions and next steps we are taking from a national AFL approach:
We are aiming to provide a more detailed update at the end of April, post the announcement of an expected roadmap for the elite game.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this uncertain and unprecedented time and recommend that all Leagues delay any announcement around 2020 season commencement dates or season cancellations until we provide further information at the end of the month.
In the meantime, we ask you continue the fantastic work and to keep footy alive in your households and communities.
From AFL Victoria
