Return to Play Protocols released

25th June, 2020

Protocols regarding Return to Play were released by AFL Victoria this morning.

Important changes are:

  • Full-contact training and full-contact competitions may resume for people 18 years and under without any limit on the number of participants, although gathering rules apply to spectators.
  • For people 18 years and under, groups of 20 are no longer relevant and full squads can train together.
  • Spectators for training and competitions must abide by public gathering restrictions – spectators should be in groups of no more than 10 people in open, outdoor venues and spread out around the ground or venue. Spectators must keep 1.5 meters apart.
  • Gathering limits will not apply to participants and those reasonably necessary to conduct the training or competition (e.g. umpires, coaches).

Please read the updates and familiarise yourself before returning to play.
