AFL Barwon to make call in June

GFL and BFL clubs will know by June 9 whether senior football will be played in 2020.

After meeting with club presidents last night, AFL Barwon is working towards two scenarios that will ultimately decide the fate of the season.

If there is no definitive return to play path provided by the State Government when it makes its next announcement on the easing of COVID-19 restrictions – likely to be in early June – a meeting of the AFL Barwon Commission will be called as soon as possible to pull the pin on senior football.

However, if State Government advice leaves the door open for play to begin, a definitive decision will be made at the scheduled meeting of the Commission on June 9.

“AFL Barwon would like to reiterate; this process is for senior GFNL and BFNL football only,” a statement from AFL Barwon said.

“All AFL Barwon competitions form an integral part of our entire region, and further decision regarding all senior and junior competitions will continue to be determined.

“The health of our region has and will always be our number one priority.”
