Covid 19 has seen WFNL Board release finals early

The Wimmera Football Netball league have today released their finals venues early due to the effects of Covid 19.

Dimboola will host the Qualifying final on Saturday, August the 28th, with Warracknabeal an Elimination final the following day.

Ararat and Murtoa both host a Semi Final the next weekend on the 4th and 5th of September with the Preliminary Final to be held at Davis Park Nhill on Sunday the 12th of September and the Grand Final will be held at Horsham City Oval on Saturday the 18th.

Vice Chair of the Wimmera and football netball league Angela Ballinger said "We've had to look at some predictive factors as to trying not to have potential teams playing at home grounds, but because we've had to predict that so far out anything could happen this year.

It's possible that somebody may be playing finals on their home ground and that's beyond our control this year, the Covid environment has just forced a hand a lot earlier than normal this year".

Clubs missed out on games in the moved rounds 7 and 8 with the board looking at those locations for finals with Ms Ballinger saying "We've taken into the account the clubs that have been really economically impacted by the canceled round 7 and round 8, that had the cap on spectators, so we've been really mindful of how that affected clubs and tried to provide an opportunity for some financial compensation by hosting a final this year".
