SANFL 2020 Season Postponed
SANFL will delay the start of the 2020 SANFL Statewide Super League season, Reserves and U18 Torrens University Cup competitions until May 31. A review of competitions which have already commenced, including the SANFL Statewide Super Women’s League and U16 Torrens University Cup, is continuing, with a shortened season under consideration. An announcement regarding these competitions will be made shortly. SANFL remains in discussions with the AFL with regards to the postponement of Community Football leagues and will provide an update as soon as possible.
The AFL wishes to advise that following a meeting with AFL State CEOs a collective decision has been made to postpone the operation and / or the commencement of each premier State League and national and state talent program across the country. The decision was collectively agreed upon based on the part-time nature of these competitions and the financial implications for the State League clubs and State Leagues. This decision is effective until May 31. The AFL will continue to explore all fixturing alternatives to ensure matches are played, however, acknowledges the situation is fluid and any decision made may change
