Locked in: WAFL start date confirmed

Friday, May 22, 2020 - 8:25 PM

Mark August 1 on your calendar – a start date has been set for the 2020 Optus WAFL Premiership Season.

The West Australian Football Commission met with WAFL club officials on Friday to decide the future of this year’s competition, which has been postponed since March 16, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Pending the further easing of restrictions set by the State Government, a nine-round WAFL season will commence on the first weekend in August and conclude no later than a week prior to the AFL Grand Final.

Full details around the fixture, finals format, player payments and the financial model will be discussed over the coming days and finalised at a WAFC Board meeting scheduled for Tuesday, May 26.
