An important message from SANFL CEO Jake Parkinson
SANFL is committed to playing a vital role in flatting the curve and supporting our South Australian health system, our footy participants and the broader community.
Together with the AFL, we have been constantly reviewing and monitoring the latest advice provided by the Federal and State Governments in order to determine our strategy around returning to play.
In consultation with governing bodies and medical experts, we are preparing a planned approach to return to training and play in 2020, providing it is safe to do so.
Critical to our return to play framework will be the COVIDSafe App to ensure we are able to quickly trace and manage any outbreaks in the community.
I therefore urge everyone associated with football, including players, coaches, umpires, officials, volunteers and supporters, to download the COVIDSafe App – it could very well be the ticket to easing restrictions and a return to playing footy sooner.
