Club Announcement:

Please see below for a message from Fitzroy Football Club President, Joan Eddy:


Dear Fitzroy Family,

The Fitzroy Football Club wishes to advise our community that in light of ongoing developments of the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Victorian Amateur Football Association has confirmed that it has postponed the 2020 season until May 2 at the earliest.

The full VAFA Statement has been posted here for your reference.

As it stands right now, all club practice matches, formal training sessions and events have been suspended until further notice.

This means the Season Launch on March 28 and Opening Round Lunch have also been cancelled.

We know that these times are uncertain and we will continue to communicate more information as it comes to hand about how we continue to respond to the impacts of the coronavirus.

We know our football club has a great community and it brings us all together. It is going to be a hard time ahead knowing that we can't go to the footy and catch up while we are being encouraged to keep our social distance. We will keep all our regular communications going to keep everyone as connected and engaged with our club as possible during this time.

You can also see the most up to date information regarding COVID-19 from relevant authorities below:

And importantly, if you, a friend or relative needs someone to talk to, here are some services that can help:

Also please feel free to contact any of the Club Directors or Coaches whose details can all be found here.

Please seek help when required, stay connected via our online platforms, and look after each other. The Fitzroy Football Club boasts a strong and kind community, we know we will get through this tough time together.

We will continue to update everyone as this situation continues to evolve and we advise you all to be cautious and safe during this time.

Go Roys,

Joan Eddy
