The Government had confirmed that no gatherings of 500 or more will take place, therefore the industry made a call to play football without a crowd for Round 1. Crowds will not be allowed to attend games until further notice.
Round 1 was played as a lock-out with no spectators allowed to attend any matches. Following this, due to changes in restrictions in some states, a restricted number of spectators have been allowed to attend our matches since Round 5.
At this stage, we are unsure what the entire fixture will look like as the AFL will be announcing the fixture in small blocks. Rounds 2 to 12 have already been announced by the AFL. Please note that each week of the fixture is tentative to change with little notice.
In accordance with club’s measures and precautions to contain the COVID-19, until announced otherwise, no training sessions at Waverley Park will be open to the public.
Our digital channels will be providing more opportunities than ever for you to connect with the club, see training vision, watch player interviews, and read the latest news with regards to our season preparation.
