Friday, May 22, 2020 - 7:34 PM

A start date for the 2020 Optus WAFL Premiership Season has been set as the first weekend in August following a productive meeting today between the West Australian Football Commission and West Australian Football League clubs.

Pending the further easing of group gathering restrictions by the State Government, a nine-round WAFL season will commence on the first weekend in August and conclude no later than a week prior to the AFL Grand Final.

Full details around the fixture, finals format, player payments and the financial model will be discussed over the coming days and finalised at a WAFC Board meeting scheduled for Tuesday, May 26.
