COVID-19 Update: SANFL

COVID-19 Update: SANFL

The SANFL issues a statement regarding upcoming SANFLW, Under-16 and Under-18 matches. 

SANFL wishes to advise that from tomorrow (Saturday 14 March) no spectators will be permitted to attend SANFL matches until further notice.

However, due to the timing of this decision, tonight's two SANFL Statewide Super Women's League matches at X Convenience Oval (Elizabeth), as well the Statewide Super League men's trial matches at Thebarton Oval and Coopers Stadium (Norwood), will go ahead as usual, with supporters allowed entry.

The restrictions will apply to tomorrow's two remaining Round 4 SANFLW matches at Flinders University Stadium (Noarlunga) and the men's trial match between Central District and Sturt at
X Convenience Oval.

Only players, umpires and officials will be allowed entry into these matches tomorrow. 

All U16 and U18 Torrens University Cup matches scheduled at various grounds on Sunday also will be played under these entry restrictions.

The situation around Coronavirus has changed rapidly today and SANFL has been in constant communication with the AFL and by extension the Federal Government health authorities and will continue to monitor the situation closely.

In addition, SANFL has provided information and advice to all SANFL clubs and leagues in South Australia which will see them introduce precautionary plans immediately to limit the risk of infection of COVID-19 to all players, staff and match officials.

SANFL will provide updates regarding any change to the current status.

Supporters are advised that the games can still be watched via the SANFL Digital Pass.
