Press Release – Thursday 12 August 2021
Following yesterdays announcement from the State Government that metropolitan Melbourne will remain in lockdown for a further seven days, all AFL Outer East fixtures scheduled this weekend have been cancelled.
All club activity which includes training, Auskick centres, events/functions, school programs and all AFL Outer East football and netball matches will continue to be suspended during this time.
Our priority on returning remains that it will be safe to do so and guided by the approval of the government, AFL & Netball Victoria.
The AFL Outer East commission met with all clubs last night to discuss the way forward to complete the home & away season and conduct a finals series, with the details to be released tomorrow.
In the meantime, we ask for all members of the community to continue looking out for each other, stay safe and healthy and abide by the restrictions in place.
