While COVID-19 continues to impact the community, the health and welfare of our players and the community remains the priority and all matches will operate in a safe manner anchored in the advice of respective governments, public health officials and medical experts.
Strict protocols will be in place to protect players, officials, staff and the wider public at all matches. Spectators are allowed to attend matches but limited crowd capacity will be enforced at all venues.
The AFL remains committed to the development and progression of women’s football across all levels in the country.
The AFL would like to acknowledge the support of all industry stakeholders throughout this process and their patience in the construction of the fixture.
