With the Victorian Government announcing that lockdown will be extended across the state for a further seven days until Tuesday, 27 July at 11.59pm because of the COVID pandemic, all community football matches, training and Auskick will not be permitted to take place in Victoria during this time, as per State Government restrictions.
The health and safety of the community remains the highest priority of the EDFL.
The EDFL and AFL Victoria will continue to work closely with the Victorian Government and will be guided by advice from the government and health authorities. Football is such an important part of so many lives and communities across Victoria, and we want to see footy back as soon as possible.
Clubs and key stakeholders will be updated with any new information regarding restrictions and protocols for community football, when available.
