Neafl Run Out

Last week the AFL outlined the restarting of the elite competition. Following on from that we have received an update from AFLQ about the process for the return of community football this year. 

Below is a summary of this and you can read the full article here:

Please be aware that the Aspley Hornets needs to follow all directions from both AFLQ and the QLD government in regards to reopening football and we will communicate with you all as we get more clarity about each step and what that means for you and your family.

There are the proposed stages for the return to football, and each stage will require a formal confirmation from AFLQ and the QLD government before we can implement them.


  • Stage 1, From May  15: No change. Club Training still not allowed.
  • Possible Stage 2, From June 12: Allowing group training up to 20 people, non-contact and with strict protocols.
  • Possible Stage 3, From July 10: A full pathway to returning to competition to be advised, if approved 

Please NOTE that these progressions will depend entirely on whether or not everyone is able to meet all the requirements laid down by the government. Our football department will be working hard over the coming weeks to put in place everything necessary to facilitate a prompt return to training when allowed.

The AFLQ has requested everyone wishing to participate in community football download and install the COVID-Safe App as part of the protocols they wish to have in place to move forward. You can see this request on their post if you follow the link above.

Here is the AFLQ Return to Play webpage which provides a lot more information and they will continue to update this as the situation changes:

We look forward to seeing you at the club at some point this season.
