2020 Season Delay

Hi Sainters

Below is recent statement from EFNL regarding the postponement of Season 2020.

Obviously with the AFL delaying the season until at least the end of May, it is highly likely that the EFNL will  do likewise.

Update Tuesday March, 17

Following a meeting of the Six Senior Metropolitan Community Leagues today, including the Essendon District FL, Eastern FNL, Northern FNL, Southern FNL, VAFA and Western Region FL, please refer to the following statement;

The decision has been made to manage the COVID-19 issue for community football, netball and umpiring with a united, consistent and staged approach.

A collective decision has been made to postpone all Community Senior and Junior football and Netball competitions until the weekend of Saturday, May 2, 2020.

All Leagues have agreed to suspend practice matches and training effective immediately.

The Leagues will re-convene on Tuesday, April 14 to review and/or confirm this commencement date, subject to the status of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This decision has been reached with consideration to consistency, League and Club Sustainability and the Health and Welfare of our players, officials, volunteers, spectator and umpires.

We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding with this matter.

The EFNL Board will formally meet Wednesday to discuss and approve the plan considering all the information available.
