THE Frankston Dolphins will not get the chance to play this year, after the cancellation of the 2020 VFL season was made official last week.
The 2020 VFL season was scheduled to get underway on 1 August, before the latest spike in Victorian COVID-19 cases put a stop to those plans. AFL clubs had to fly out of Victoria during the week to ensure they could continue to play.
Frankston FC were set to be one of seven teams that would compete in this year’s VFL competition. Dolphins players returned to training at SkyBus Stadium on 2 June with a modified program.
A statement on the club’s Facebook page read “to all of our 2020 Members, we thank you for your great support this year which has been absolutely amazing and imperative to our survival.”
“To our coaches, players, support staff who have stuck with the club from the commencement of preseason training in the last week of October 2019 to our last training run last night, we thank you so much for all you have put in to this year.
“We will all regroup and work towards 2021 season now with great anticipation.”
