COVID-19 Update: 25 June 2021
Today, the NSW Government extended the Greater Sydney COVID-19 restrictions following updated health advice from the Chief Health Officer, Dr Kerry Chant, about the growing risk to the community.
In addition to the restrictions announced yesterday, stay-at-home orders are being introduced for at least one week for those who live in, or whose usual place of work is in, Woollahra, Waverley, Randwick and City of Sydney Councils.
Due to the impact of the extended restrictions on our community football competitions and NAB AFL Auskick across metropolitan Sydney, there will be no matches played in the following competitions this weekend, 26-27 June:
- – AFL Sydney Seniors
- – AFL Sydney Harbour Juniors (currently on a scheduled winter break)
- – AFL Western Sydney Juniors
There will be no Auskick in metropolitan Sydney.
AFL Sydney will update clubs on fixturing implications when more is known about the duration of current Greater Sydney COVID-19 restrictions.
AFL NSW/ACT encourages all clubs and participants to familiarise themselves with how they are impacted by latest health advice and Public Health Orders. Updates can be found here.
Given the evolving situation, AFL NSW/ACT will continue to monitor communication issued by government and provide updates on matches and training when available.
We understand this is a difficult time for everyone and we thank our Sydney football community for your ongoing support and leadership.
For those community football leagues and Auskick centres continuing across the Greater Sydney region, which includes Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour local government area, the below are guidelines on how the current COVID-19 restrictions practically apply to the community football setting.
Please note these are guidelines only and are subject to change.
