AFL Announcement Re Training

AFL Victoria Statement Regarding Community Football Training 11/05/20

Hi all,

On the back of the State Government announcement around easing some restrictions, AFL Victoria’s position around training is that no sanctioned training should take place until further notice.

AFL Victoria will seek clarity from the State Government around what today’s announcement means for community football and be in contact in due course.
A number of considerations around health and safety protocols and insurance need to be worked through prior to any training being sanctioned.

AFL Victoria will provide a return to play protocol for community leagues and clubs once it is approved by the State Government.

As soon as I have more information I’ll be in touch.


Stephen O’Donohue
Head of Community Football Victoria
