What is the current situation for 2020 Toyota AFL Premiership Season matches?
As at Monday, March 23, the 2020 Toyota AFL Premiership Season is suspended.
The AFL has made the decision to suspend the season until May 31, 2020; however, the season will only resume after consultation with state and federal governments, and relevant medical authorities.
The AFL still intends to play the remaining 16 rounds of the season in 2020; however, the schedule for these remaining matches is yet to be determined.
The club acknowledges and supports the AFL’s decision to prioritise the health and safety of the community at this unprecedented stage in the League’s history.
