The Coburg Football Club provides this club statement in response to recent media reports and stories that have stated that the 2020 VFL season has been cancelled.

General Manager Sebastian Spagnuolo provides the following information –

“At both Executive and Board of Director level, our club is in close consultation and communication with the AFL along with representatives of all VFL club’s and we can confirm that, contrary to some media reporting, no decision has been made regarding the 2020 VFL season.

The initial date set by the league of May 31st 2020 as a season suspension end date is still the planned date that we are working to.

Once any decision is made by the AFL regarding the VFL, our club will be informing all key stakeholders – players, staff and club members and sponsors.

Within the club, our Board of Directors and Executive team are also meeting very frequently to ensure that our club is well prepared for any decision that may be made regarding the 2020 VFL season, but we want to be clear with all club stakeholders that no decision has been made as yet.

I’d like to once again thank everyone associated with the club for their ongoing loyalty, support and patience as we all work together to get through this Covid-19 challenge.”
