Season’s finished?

With SA closing it’s borders this week the A League can’t continue for the Reds. No more travel for non-essential needs.

Seems like it. Perth have refused to relocate to the east as well, so I think it's stuffed.

Effectively. I imagine they'll continue to play the games they can on the East Coast until it all locks-up (perhaps another week or two).

My concept of getting all the teams in one regional locale for three weeks or so of solid fixtures had merit, Too late now.

On the bright side, my Liverpool mates are having kittens :)

I think that's what NRL are (possibly) planning .
Not worth it imo. Shut it down, let the players be with their families.
All I need is some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I'm fine.

There must be some kind of clause preventing FFA from ending the season where Foxtel would not have to pay.

Its not a good look for the league that its still lingering , it should have been called off weeks ago. However I get the feeling they need the government to shut them down so as not to break contractual agreements and bankrupt the league.

Only speculation though

Force Majeure, perhaps.

I do know that the government moving all countries to a Level 4 travel designation buggered the insurance for a lot of us working in developing nations, ironically many on DFAT contracts.

Asian Champions League requires qualifying leagues to have at least a 25 game season and a domestic Cup competition.

I think we can safely say those requirements will be turfed for the 2021 ACL.
