AFL Gippsland to meet next month

FRIDAY, May 15 looms as “D-Day” for football and netball in Gippsland, with AFL Gippsland to meet on that date to determine if a season will happen and what it will look like.

If season 2020 is given the green light, clubs are likely to have three weeks notice before matches commence.

In electronic communications circulated to clubs and leagues from AFL Gippsland regional manager Richard Black, the message of hope for some football and netball to be played in 2020 was sold.

“This is the basis of our ongoing operational and budgetary planning across a range of season start date scenarios,” the statement read.

“We are currently working with local councils and cricketing bodies to explore ground availability and season length options.”
