The AFL thanks the AFLPA and all the players for their continued support of the game and the industry, and appreciate their passion to play and commitment to the Toyota AFL Premiership season and the NAB AFL Women's season in 2020.

We all understand how important our game is to our fans and supporters, and the players, the AFL and our clubs are united in our commitment to the broader Australian community.
 
The AFL is also committed to ensuring a safe environment for all our players, staff and supporters as well as doing what we need to do to protect the wider community.
 
The AFL is continuing to work closely with all our clubs, staff and players, corporate partners, and broadcasters, on the next steps for both the Toyota AFL Premiership season and the NAB AFL Women's season.
  
As we work our way through these challenging times we will continue to be guided by Government and the state and federal Chief Medical and Health Officers as well as working with all our stakeholders.  We will make a further announcement tomorrow.
