Seasons to recommence

- BY EMMA PRIOR

However only games held in NSW will be able to have NSW border bubble spectators as Victorian border bubble residents are not able to cross the border on the pretense of spectating and Victorian sport is unable to have crowds except one parent per player with junior sport.

The Picola and District Football Netball League who were set to begin the first week of finals this week will complete their home and away season before heading into the finals campaign.

A statement released to social media read: “After restrictio­ns were lifted on Monday for Regional Victoria and after a meeting with all clubs, PDFNL will return this week with round 16 as previously fixtured, before moving into the finals.”

The Ovens and Murray Football Netball League revealed on Tuesday morning that at this stage the league is recommenci­ng the season this weekend with round 17.

O&M Chair David Sinclair said: ““A decision is still to be made on whether we play round 18 or go straight to finals meaning the

Grand Final would be played on Sunday, September 12 rather than the scheduled date of September 19.

“Games in Victoria will not have crowds as per Government restrictio­ns.

“Games in NSW can attract crowds of up to 3000 however Victorians are not able attend due spectating at a football game not being one of 10 reasons to cross the Border.”

The Murray Football Netball League (MFNL) who have two rounds scheduled before the start of the finals will also resume their season as planned.

“Bounceback 6.0!” MFNL General Manager Dale Norman said.

“The Murray Football Netball League will resume Saturday, August 14 with round 17 games as scheduled.

“The home and away season will conclude the week after with finals set to begin the weekend of August 28 and 29.

“The Grand Final will be played on September 18.”
