Unfortunately, the Victorian Government’s recent announcement extending our lockdown has meant that our Semi Final games scheduled for August 29th will now need to be abandoned.
There is also strong concern that the lockdown may be extended further, or at the least travel restrictions be imposed.
The Board met last night to consider the only 2 choices available to us:
· Abandon the rest of the Season
· Endeavour to play Grand Finals on September 12 as scheduled.
In considering the possibilities of staging these games we had to take into account many factors, the welfare of players returning from such a long break with minimal training, possible travel and crowd number restrictions, and their commercial viability.
With so many uncertainties in play, the Board have made the decision to abandon the balance of the 2021 Season.
We hope you all stay safe in these troubled times and will continue to send you information about our Constitution review and confirmation of the AGM date.
