The Northern Bullants will resume their VFL season when they take on Frankston at SkyBus Stadium (Frankston Oval) on Friday evening.

The match, though, will not be open to spectators, following the announcement by the Victorian State Government relating to the return of community sport for all ages from Friday June 18 which will see a return of the 2021 VFL and 2021 VFLW Competitions to Victoria this weekend.

Attendance at all games in Metropolitan Melbourne will be limited to the minimum number of people required to participate in and facilitate the football match.

All VFL and VFLW Clubs returned to training on Friday June 11 ahead of the anticipated return to competition and are prepared for all matches this weekend.

The fixture for both the VFL competition will become a week-by-week proposition for the short-term with a fixture for the remainder of the VFL season to be released shortly.

The AFL is committed to working through the rounds plus finals to complete both seasons, and will continue to meet with all parties and plan for all scenarios acting on the advice from government, relevant health departments and medical experts.

The Northern Bullants thank all members, partners and the broader club community for their patience and understanding, and will provide full coverage of Friday night’s clash with the Dolphins on the club’s social media channels.
