Unfortunately the Season for Community football has been cancelled due to the ongoing restrictions in place
below is a joint statement from the EFNL and other Victorian Leagues
JOINT STATEMENT – 2021 COMPETITIONS CANCELLED
The EDFL, EFNL, NFNL, RDFNL, SFNL, SMJFL, VAFA and WRFL collectively wish to
issue a statement regarding the 2021 season.
Following yesterday’s State Government announcement of an extension to lockdown in
metropolitan Melbourne until at least September 23, all leagues have mutually decided to
cancel all competitions for the 2021 season.
This announcement does not apply to Auskick. AFL Victoria will provide an update on
Auskick in due course.
This decision is an extremely difficult one and has not been made lightly.
All leagues have been working diligently in the hope of enabling the remaining games in the
2021 season to be played.
However, it is now apparent this will not be possible in the current environment.
All leagues are committed to working closely with their member clubs, AFL Victoria and
Netball Victoria to manage the associated issues related to the cancellation of all 2021
competitions and working towards a return to play next season.
We wish to take this opportunity to thank all clubs, players, parents, volunteers, officials,
umpires and league partners for your patience, support and cooperation throughout the 2021
We urge all associated with our respective communities to heed the advice and regulations in
place by order of the State Government.
We all have a role to play in ensuring our community remains safe and healthy so we can all
return to football and netball next season.
Further updates regarding the operational aspects of this decision will be provided in due
course via each respective league.
All leagues look forward to returning to competition bigger and better in 2022
