We knew this was a very real possibility as we went into lockdown
a few months ago, but remained hopeful. We were thrilled
to get back to training and the Club has been so impressed
with our players and coaches' commitment to stick to the
strict protocols and show their enthusiasm out on the park.
It's been amazing to see so much passion and love for the game,
and the Fitzroy Football Club, in everyone as we were able
to come back together for a little while.
However the recent spike of cases of COVID-19 in Melbourne,
and with a number of areas going back into lockdown from
later tonight, we understand why this decision had to be
made and the Club supports the VAFA in making it.
We are yet to learn more about what we're still able to do
as a Club this year, and what we can offer our players
in terms of training and small group activities. This information
will take a little longer for us to gather and will be
determined by ongoing decisions that will come from the
VAFA, State Government & DHHS. We will communicate
more information as soon as we have it.
I want to thank everyone in our community for your ongoing
support during this time. Our Sponsors for sticking
by us, our members for staying on board, all our volunteers,
players, coaches and supporters, thank you. The Roys
spirit continues to thrive because of you.
We will bring everyone more information as it comes to
us but for now, please follow the rules and stay safe.
