Competition Impacts Due to Lockdown

The McDonald's Ballarat FNL announces impacts to the various competitions in light of the lockdown announcement from the Victorian Government. 

Detailed below is the impact this lockdown has on the various BFNL competitions and how they will be managed. 

MCDONALD'S BFNL SENIOR COMPETITION 

The senior competition will be paused, effective immediately, until such time as health advice and government policy allows for a return to competition. 

Round 11 was due to be played Saturday 17th July, which would have been the first milestone required by the league for the integrity of the 2021 premiership, in that all clubs will have played each other once. 

The intention is to restart the senior competition with a delayed Round 11 to meet this requirement detailed above. 

Impacts on the balance of the home & away fixture will be dependent on the length of the lockdown and the start-up timeframe for a return to play. 

All options for the remainder of the season, including finals, will be considered as the situation evolves and becomes clear. 

MCDONALD'S BFNL JUNIOR COMPETITION 

The junior competition will see the coming round of matches across football and netball removed from the fixture. This round will not see any results recorded, nor games played. 

Given the period impacted to date, and the need to finalise the season, this round of football and netball will not be rescheduled. 

The junior competitions will resume at the round fixtured as of the date a return to play is allowed. 

McDELIVERY BFL WOMEN'S 

As with the junior fixture, BFLW competitions will see the coming round of matches removed from the fixture. This round will not see any results recorded, nor games played. 

Given the period impacted to date, and the need to finalise the season, this round of football will not be rescheduled. 

The junior competitions will resume at the round fixtured as of the date a return to play is allowed. 

The league, through our member clubs, support the measures that have been introduced to address the health concerns COVID is having within our community and look forward to positive news next week that will see a return to play as soon as possible.
