COVID-19 Season Update


The LFNC will be taking on the recommendations from the CHFL & CHNL, and after tonight all training and matches will be postponed until the 31st of May 2020.

We will endeavour to keep you all up to date as we are provided further information.

We understand this is a unique and challenging time, and we encourage you to reach out if you require any further support! 💙💛


Following lengthy consultation with AFL Victoria and Government Health Experts, recommendations have been passed down for all Community Football Leagues, Auskick and School Programs in Victoria to postpone training and matches until 31st May.

AFL Goldfields accepts and endorses these recommendations.

For AFL Goldfields this incorporates all affiliated leagues/associations;

  • McDonald’s Ballarat Football Netball League
  • Ontime Delivery Solutions Riddell District Football Netball League
  • McDonald’s Maryborough Castlemaine District Football League
  • Bendigo Bank & Rural Bank Central Highlands Football League
  • AFL Goldfields Female Football League
  • Ballarat Football Umpires Association
  • Riddell Umpires

All League boards will determine how their season will look from here and fixtures will be created over the next few weeks to reflect the new dates.

We are working closely with AFL Victoria to work through this extremely unique situation.

This is a challenging time for everyone concerned. Knowing the positive impact that football & netball clubs have on our communities, we will be working hard to ensure our seasons are ready to go when deemed safe.
