2020 EDFL Footy Series start now postponed until May 31, 2020 (as at Monday March 23)

Following the announcement by the AFL to suspend the 2020 season until May 31, the Essendon District FL, Eastern FNL, Southern FNL, Northern FNL, Western Region FL and Victorian Amateur Football Association have collectively decided to postpone their respective seasons until May 31.

The senior community leagues were united in their support of the AFL’s decision and look forward to working with AFL Victoria to work through all associated issues.

The health and wellbeing of our players, coaches, umpires, volunteers and associated stakeholders remains our first priority, as is the sustainability of all of our clubs.

We urge all associated with our respective communities to heed the advice and regulations in place by order of the State Government.
