Note from the President – Club Statement
Well we are certainly living in strange times at the moment.
I wanted to give a quick update on where we sit with the COVID-19 virus and how it is affecting our club. I won’t be saying too much here because of the lack of information at this time but I will definitely fill you in as I get more. You can be sure that the HFC taking this very serious and will take every measure to ensure our players, officials and supporters health will not be compromised by this.
The AFL has recommended that training cease from this week, until further notice. The start of the season has unfortunately been postponed with no community football to be played before May 31. This is disappointing and frustrating (believe me I know, I now have time to do my lawns when I would much prefer to be at the footy) but everyone’s health is a priority at this time. Obviously a few of our early functions are in limbo but the board will be looking at these and we will see if we can move them to later in the season. In the short term we will postpone the upcoming Season Launch function (which will be re-scheduled to a future date). If some of these functions don’t go ahead we will need your support when it comes down to other functions later in the year.
Anyway as I said I just wanted to let you all know how we are travelling at this time and that I am in touch with the SFL daily (sometimes more and I am sure they are sick of me) about what we are doing and how it will affect us.
I will certainly pass on any more information as I get it.
Look after yourselves and stay healthy.
President, Hobart Football Club Inc.
