Football will kick off in Geraldton on July 11.

The delayed Great Northern Football League season will to be played over 10 rounds by colts, reserves, league and women’s teams, with semi, preliminary and grand finals finishing on October 4.

League president Colin Cox said clubs would need to work on their coronavirus plans.

He said the GNFL was drafting a formula for physical distancing that would be sent to the clubs.

Protocols potentially include marking spaces in stands, having a gap between games at the same field to allow people to move in and out, and checking numbers of people entering and leaving grounds.

Cox said clubs would need to make sure they had all the protocols in place.

“This gives them a month to go about it,” he said.
