THE AFL Barwon Commission will meet tonight to discuss the future of the 2020 junior football and netball season.

With the State Government reintroducing Stage 3 restrictions in regional Victoria, no community sport – including at underage levels – can be played.

It is likely to mean the cancellation of the season, which was only three rounds old.

Although, with restrictions in place until September 13 at this stage, the Commission may leave the door open to playing on the last two weekends of the month.

Region General Manager Will McGregor conceded in an open letter last Friday that the future of the season was a “day-to-day proposition”.

An official announcement is due tomorrow morning.
