AFL Masters appreciate it is difficult for players and their families to book anything for the Perth 2020 National Carnival, without knowing if the event is going ahead. At this stage, all we can say is we are exploring all possibilities, and our current timeline is to make a decision is on the 1st of June, when the current AFL guidance period concludes.
Of course, if anything changes before then, we will advise accordingly. Until then, our advice to anyone booking flights and accommodation is to make their bookings transferable where possible.
We have been in regular contact with the Perth Organising Committee and State Delegates over the last few weeks, to try and plot a way forward. The Perth Organizing Committee has also been engaging local stakeholders such as WA Tourism and the local footy associations in finding a solution.
In the words of our national carnival patron Susan Alberti, “Stay well. We will get through this crisis. Aussies are tough.”
