The AFL has today advised VFL and VFLW clubs that this weekend’s matches will not proceed due to the lockdown announced by the Victorian Government this morning.
Outdoor physical recreation and sport will be closed across Victoria during the seven-day lockdown period which starts today at 11.59pm AEST.
The community sport restrictions apply to the VFL and VFLW competitions.
All VFL and VFLW matches scheduled to be played in Victoria and involving Victorian clubs this weekend have been postponed.
The Bulldogs were due to host the Casey Demons in a VFL-VFLW double-header at VU Whitten Oval on Sunday.
Alternate arrangements will be made for all six interstate clubs for this weekend. No clubs will play for VFL premiership points this weekend.
The inclusion of three allocated byes for all VFL clubs provides flexibility with the fixture moving forward.
The VFLW home and away season has two games remaining before a scheduled bye and the AFL will work through a revised fixture.
Restrictions are enforced until 11.59pm on Thursday 3 June, with no VFL or VFLW training to occur in this period.
