Mininera and District Football League has called off its 2020 season.
The league’s management board made the decision at a meeting tonight after discussing feedback from clubs regarding the impact of COVID-19 restrictions.
League president John Box said all clubs and board members were supportive of the move and respectful of individual club decisions based on the best interests of players, volunteers and supporters.

“The board would like to also acknowledge the time and effort that clubs have invested into endeavouring to achieve a return to play for 2020,” he said.
“The board is very interested in trying to get a competition up and running for junior footballers and netballers this year, with the possibility of joining in with other leagues.”
Mr Box said the league thanked a strong supporter base and sponsors for their understanding, support and patience during ‘a very uncertain’ year.
“We now look forward to working towards the 2021 football season,” he said.
The league follows other competitions, including Horsham District, Wimmera, North Central and Kowree-Naracoorte-Tatiara, in abandoning the 2020 senior season.
