We Are Balwyn
Dear Life members, members, players, sponsors and supporters,
Today both the EFNL and the NFNL have announced that season 2020 will not proceed due to the Covid 19 pandemic and the resultant restrictions related to the engagement of people at open venues, protocols surrounding facility management and the impost on volunteers being key reasons for the decision made today.
The full media release is here https://efnl.org.au
Clearly this is a very disappointing outcome (albeit predictable) with the hopes of our club and all clubs in playing this season. Local footy is fundamental to our community engagements, friendships and competition and we have all experienced the vacuum in our weekend activities by not being able to watch the mighty Tigers from under 19’s to seniors.
To our sponsors and business partners these times have been very difficult for many and our clubs support goes out to you and I would encourage everyone to seek out and utilise our business partners products and services. It helps their businesses and employs people.
To our players and coaches having completed a pre-season obviously disappointing for all of you and in particular the under 19’s and our new recruits to Balwyn. The important message at this time is really to stay healthy, exercise and hopefully remain employed or further your studies.
Looking forward without a vaccine, next season will be different including pre season. I have no doubt the season will proceed and we can all look forward to Covid normal then. We will stay in touch with any news, events the club can hold and gatherings to keep the Balwyn Tiger community together as one.
