UPDATE ON SEASON 2020
Covid-19 update on the Perth Football League's 2020 season
18th May 2020
WE ARE BACK TRAINING!
With the announcement of the WA Government’s COVID-19 Road Map, the WAFC has provided Return to Training Protocols for all of football in WA. These are applicable to all Perth Football League clubs.
With these guidelines in mind, we are back training at Hamer Park every Tuesday and Thursday night from 6pm. Groups are split into no more than 20 people and social distancing is still required. However it is important that we all attend training now so we are ready for the season to commence as soon as it's annouced!
SEASON 2020 UPDATE
On initial government lock down in March, the League had proposed re-commencing the season on the 13th June 2020. This is no longer the case. The WA Government’s COVID-19 Road Map now plans for contact sport to commence in mid-June which would allow clubs to undertake preseason contact training.
Therefore, we are currently planning that if this became the case, the season would commence mid-July with 9 home & away rounds but with a shortened finals series to complete the season by 30 September 2020.
However, at this stage, the Perth Football League is unable to confirm a season re-commencement date until the WA Government review current restrictions in mid-June. Neither is the League able to confirm fixtures and how many home matches each club could have until clubs are requested to re-submit team nominations.
