The McDonald's Ballarat FNL welcomes today's easing of restrictions that will allow senior football and netball to return to competition.
With crowd limits increased in regional Victoria to a maximum of 1,000 people, the last requirement to allow competition to return has been met.
As two rounds have been lost due to restrictions, the McDonald's BFNL senior competition will have a slightly different look and flow to the previous fixture published.
The senior football and netball fixture will be revised as follows:
The priority for the league has been to ensure all clubs play each other at least once, which is the minimum requirement to ensure a premiership season and will be achieved through the completion of round 10 scheduled for 17th July.
The revised game schedule ensures fixture integrity through all clubs having seven home and away games, along with two byes.
Looking forward, we wait for further announcements from the government that will allow crowds for metro-based BFNL clubs scheduled to host games in round eight.
This weekend will see the full Ballarat FNL competitions in action across BFNL seniors, BFNL juniors and BFLW. Western Bulldogs Under 9’s will resume this Friday night after a short break as well.
