Dear Adelaide Oval Football Member,
Thank you for your patience over the past couple of months while waiting for the AFL to confirm their plans for the 2020 Toyota AFL Premiership season.
On Friday, 15 May the AFL announced they will resume the season on Thursday,11 June, with plans for the Crows and Power to be based on the Gold Coast for at least the first four weeks of the season. Matches for the remainder of the season will be released in blocks of 4-6 weeks.
Given the continued uncertainty around the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, the AFL are yet to provide a definitive answer on whether AFL games and crowds will return to Adelaide Oval this season.
That being said, we understand that every member’s situation is different during these uncertain times and we would like to confirm the following details in regard to your membership:
You will receive a pro-rata credit for any money paid towards your 2020 membership that you are not able to utilise due to a lockout, and this will be automatically deducted from the cost of your Season 2021 membership.
Alternatively, you may choose to receive a full reimbursement of your 2020 membership payment. If you decide to pursue this option, you can contact Adelaide Oval Football Member Services by email or phone over the coming months to request a reimbursement.
We are already experiencing a high volume of emails and calls off the back of the AFL’s announcement so thank you in advance for your patience as it may take us a little longer than usual to take your call, reply to your email or process reimbursements.
If you would like to discuss your 2020 membership, please contact Member Services via email email@example.com or phone 1300 100 336.
Like many industries, football has been hit hard by the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. More than ever, we need to come together in support of our great game to ensure that we come back stronger.
Your membership directly funds all levels of SANFL football from junior programs, to men’s and women’s community footy, right through to the elite level, so your support plays an important part in ensuring the game we love remains affordable and accessible at all levels.
Adelaide Oval and the SANFL recognise the financial and emotional support you give the game of football week in week out and like you, we look forward to welcoming you back to Adelaide Oval when football returns.
Until that time, please stay safe and healthy.
Adelaide Oval Football Membership Team
