The AFL has today advised all VFL and VFLW Clubs that club training can recommence for all clubs in Victoria from Friday June 11 ahead of an anticipated return to matches, however neither of the Hawks' state-league teams will play games this weekend.
Following the announcement from the Victorian State Government relating to changes to the Circuit Breaker Lockdown restrictions, outdoor physical recreation and sport competitions remain closed across Metropolitan Melbourne. This affects all VFL and VFLW matches scheduled for this weekend involving Victorian clubs.
The fixture for both the VFL and rebel VFLW competitions will become a week-by-week proposition for the short-term and the AFL will continue to work with the Victorian Government and Health Officials on finding solutions for these competitions.
The rebel VFLW home and away season has two games remaining with a four-week finals series with time in the calendar to play all matches. The VFLW Grand Final will not take place as originally scheduled on Sunday July 11 with a new date to be confirmed to accommodate all remaining games.
Hawthorn is looking forward to two big clashes to finish off its 2021 VFLW season, with highly anticipated home matches against Port Melbourne and Geelong still to come.
The club will provide more information regarding both the VFL and VFLW competitions as it comes to hand.
