Forget the solo training drills, post-coronavirus sport is a goer

Forget the solo training drills, post-coronavirus sport is a goer

12/05/2020, Australia, Soccer, Hyundai A-League, Article # 29876080

Warm up the vocal cords sports fans, your favourite team is now free to train and so are you – from the couch – as officials start to articulate what their competitions will look like post-coronavirus.

As state governments start to relax their restrictions around group sessions, the road ahead has become clearer for the AFL and NRL – the latter parlaying its PR and financial disasters into an extended broadcast deal and a playbook for restarting all sport across the country.

The NRL’s new deal may be something of a Pyrrhic victory, but at least it shores up the future of all clubs in an uncertain time.

Having been caught out by the need for shutdowns, ARL Commission chairman Peter V’Landys hopes to bank a $2.3 billion broadcast deal over seven years with Nine and Foxtel – effectively discounting the rights for stability sake until 2026.

AAP reported the revamped contract would cover the remaining three years of the NRL’s existing deal, which is $1.8 billion for 2018-2022, plus a four-season extension until the end of 2026.

V’Landys’ dealmaking was key to ensuring a quick resumption of sport.

His bold statement that the NRL would aim to return on May 28 appeared to be the key moment when the minds of lawmakers turned backed to the sporting economy.

Now, the fans have been invited to get ready to cheer again – albeit from the comfort of their homes.

The AFL is moving this week to finalise its plans – keen to be seen to be balancing the health risks with the need to get the show back on the road.

The AFL Commission met on Monday and plans are being workshopped in hookups with clubs around the country.

The stated aim of a roadmap by May 11 came and went on Monday without an announcement.

While Australian Rules has had the benefit of sitting back and watching a desperate NRL make the running for a resumption, its asset and cash reserves sees it resumes in a better financial position going forward.

It’s now thought the AFL will make its plans known by Thursday, with plans for Round 2 of the season to begin by mid-June.

The Victorian government had been a holdout on restrictions, but on Monday its move to exempt professional clubs from group training bans provided a key piece of the puzzle.

The AFL has not been keen to allow training until clubs from all states could participate.

The Victorian government move was also a boon for Melbourne’s NRL team. Storm now plans to return to its AAMI Park base on Thursday having previously relocated across the NSW border to Albury.

All professional teams based in Victoria can train as full squads and resume contact training from Wednesday.

“If they’re using a training facility, an indoor gym for instance, or an outdoor area, it must be exclusively for them,” Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said.

It’s been a very positive partnership, not just with footy (AFL) but with rugby league and other codes, and I’m confident that they understand that there are risks and they need to do everything they can to mitigate those.’’

The Victorian climbdown allowed NRL team Melbourne Storm to plan a return from its Albury training base, with training to resume in Melbourne on Thursday.

No such luck for Gold Coast players Bryce Cartwright and Brian Kelly who have been were stood down for refusing to receive a flu shot.

The Titans are hoping the Queensland government will accept the NRL’s biosecurity guidelines that allow players to sign a waiver to refuse the vaccination, but for now state authorities are sticking to the ‘no jab, no play’ policy.

The easing of restrictions also came a week too late for the AFL’s Adelaide Crows, with 16 players copping a suspended one-match sanction and assistant coach Ben Hart stood down until June 22 after their violated training regulations last week.

The Crows players, along with some of West Coast’s squad, are in mandatory quarantine after travel, meaning it will be at least another week before they can train again.

Through all the intrigue, soccer’s A-League competition remains in limbo, despite it having only five rounds plus finals to go to finish its 2019-2020 season.

Its situation has been complicated by requiring the participation of the New Zealand team Wellington Phoenix, although league bosses are thought to be working on a plan to bring the team to Sydney, where all remaining games would be played.

The most likely scenario for the A-League appears to be an August restart, with Nine media also reporting that the competition is also in delicate negotiations with Fox Sports about its broadcast deal going forward. That near-$60 million-a-year deal has three seasons to run.

Rugby Australia is organising a new Super Rugby competition starting  in early July.

RA has released a return-to-play strategy with the aim of starting a five or six team 12-week competition, with Western Force and possibly Japan’s Sunwolves joining the four Australian Super Rugby teams.

Of all sports, cricket appeared to dodge the worst of the coronavirus shutdowns, but British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s move to keep restrictions on professional sport means Australia’s white-ball tour of England is looking increasingly unlikely to proceed.

Australia was due to play three T20s and a trio of ODIs from July 3 to 16, with AAP reporting that the games could be swapped to early September in place of England’s limited-overs series against Ireland.

And with international tennis likely be one of the last sports to resume due to travel restrictions, Australia’s French Open champion Ash Barty has said she will put her faith in the governing body to make the call about a return.

“I’m keen to get back on the court, but health always comes first,” the French Open singles champion told AAP.

“This is a tough time for so many people in the world. There are more important things than tennis right now.

“It’s a unique situation so it’s tough to compare it to anything. All I can do is keep my fitness up, keep hitting and stay positive.

I feel fortunate to be in Australia where the restrictions are easing a little and we are able to train again.’’

The clay court tournament at Roland Garros was initially scheduled to be held from May 24 to June 7, but was postponed until September 20 to October 4 and it may be delayed even further.

“It’s a unique situation so it’s tough to compare it to anything. All I can do is keep my fitness up, keep hitting and stay positive,” Barty said.

Sinking NRL provides a sporting life raft for other sports to climb aboard

Sinking NRL provides a sporting life raft for other sports to climb aboard

27/04/2020, Australia, Soccer, Hyundai A-League, Article # 29861654

While a rising tide lifts all boats in good times, it seems the darkest days of Australian sport may be nearing an end – thanks to the distressed NRL throwing out a life raft for all competitions.

Clinging on to anything to stay afloat, the ARL Commission chairman Peter V’landys appeared a desperate and drowning man when he unilaterally announced May 28 for the resumption of the NRL season.

Perhaps surprisingly – given rugby league’s previous PR missteps at the start of the COVID-19 crisis – it is a move that has paid dividends.

That was then: Former NRL CEO Todd Greenberg and ARLC chairman Peter V’landys when the COVID-19 crisis hit. Photo: AAP 

Rugby league’s agitation resulted in a 48-page document outlining health and safety protocols to play sport safely – forcing state and federal governments to consider a national plan for the resumption of all competitions.

That plan looks set to be signed off by federal cabinet this Friday, giving sport from elite to community level a framework for getting back on the field.

“These will be matters taken up by the national cabinet because we know it doesn’t affect just one code,” NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said on Monday.

It affects a number of codes, it affects community sport … the Prime Minister and all the state leaders felt it was appropriate to have a national response to these matters.’’

The NRL has been battered more than most through the coronavirus-enforced sport bans since mid-March.

The league’s financial travails became obvious after a public spat with its broadcast partners, the closure of club gaming venues and the resignation of chief executive Todd Greenberg.

While there are still delicate negotiations over the structure of the competition with the broadcast partners this week, it now seems the NRL is on track to getting the New Zealand-based Warriors back in the country to restart the season.

The AFL – along with soccer’s A-League – has had the benefit of sitting back and watching the NRL make the case for a resumption without risking a public backlash or being seen to be pushing against medical opinion.

In Melbourne, AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan and club administrators are now a long way down the track to finalising their plans for a restart of the season, with final details expected to be announced on May 11.

All states are believed to be in the mix as part of the AFL resumption, with possibly three regional ‘hubs’ allowing the league to be up and running by mid to late June.

The hubs plan would likely see six teams playing in each quarantined area, reducing the need for travel, but getting the season fully under way.

The A-League, which was stopped with only weeks to play before its final series, is also looking at a resumption – although its plans are less clear and limited to mid-May with a possible mid-June restart.

Governing body FFA last week said it needs all state and federal border restrictions lifted before considering resuming the season, a statement that prompted a backlash from players and fans who see the other competition with firmer plans and start dates.

FFA chief executive James Johnson has committed to finishing the season, saying: “Our goal is to deliver live, professional football and complete the Hyundai A-League 2019-20 season, and we have set a number of criteria that will define when this is going to be possible”.

“Football takes its responsibilities as a good corporate citizen very seriously … Ultimately, the coronavirus will have the final say on when we can get the season started again, and completed.”

Talks are also continuing at Rugby Australia, with Super Rugby likely to become a domestic competition sometime in July followed by finals against New Zealand teams.

Plans for what the NRL season will look like are still being finalised, although ARL Commissioner Wayne Pearce confirmed that teams had been told to prepare to begin training again from next Monday.

“What was also confirmed that the competition points that had been earned in the first two rounds will carry over to the extended competition,” Pearce said on NRL.com.au.

“Everyone is supportive of what we’re doing. Everyone is unified into getting back on the field.

“We feel like we owe it to not just the players and coaches, but the thousands of staff members at various clubs and associated industries that are out on the unemployment lines too.”

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said on Monday that the guidelines expected from federal cabinet on Friday would be used to  provide a safe workplace for players and the community.

“Everyone wants to see sport come back in some shape or form,” Ms Palaszczuk told the ABC.

“It needs to be safe for the players and the teams, and it needs to be safe for the community.”

The AFL hub plan has seen a rush from clubs to spruik the benefits of their facilities being used, thus ensuring a possible home advantage.

Brisbane Lions chief executive Greg Swann told AAP Queensland’s south-east is an obvious choice because of the warmer climate.

“It makes sense for us to be in the mix,” Swann said.

Keep your distance: Mitch Robinson of the Brisbane Lions. His club hopes to be part of a Queensland ‘hub’.

“Obviously there’s a lot of other states trying to lobby for that but … we think we’ve got accommodation, we’ve got the best facilities, we’ve got the best weather, we’ve got two great grounds that you can play footy on every night.”

Swann also backed the AFL’s cautious approach with planning a resumption.

“Once we start we don’t want to stop. We want to keep the season going,” he said.

“We don’t want to play four games and have to stop because of an issue or whatever.

“That’s one of the reasons that we’re looking to take our time a little bit about when we come back because I think that is a major consideration.

“We want to make sure that all our ducks are in a row and that we get to play a season without hopefully further interruptions.”

However, there has been some concern about whether all AFL players would be involved, with St Kilda coach Brett Ratten saying he’d respect the decision of any player who does not want to be part of it.

“Somebody could say, ‘It’s too hard for me mentally to leave my wife and kids or not to see my kids’ and we would respect that,” Ratten told SEN on Monday.

“The health of our people and the mental health of our people is first and foremost.

“If that meant somebody said they weren’t playing, we would respect that.”

Thursday 28 September 2017

 

Football Federation Australia (FFA) today officially unveiled the updated Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy following the rebranding of the Hyundai A-League competition in the lead-up to the 2017/18 season.

 

While FFA considered changing the design and style of the new Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy, it was decided that its uniqueness was the very property that defined it. As such, FFA has stayed true to the original iconic design and modified it to reflect the new competition logo and style concepts.

 

“The Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy is unique, and over the past 12 seasons of the competition has become a symbol of the success of our teams, the commitment of our Clubs, as well as the passion of the league’s Members and fans,” said the Head of the Hyundai A-League & Westfield W-League, Greg O’Rourke

 

“We again thank Clive Solari and his team at D3 Design who also produced the original Hyundai A-League Championship Trophy, and also thank W. J. Sanders in Sydney for their fine craftsmanship in producing the new trophy.

 

“Next week we will see ten clubs begin the battle for the right to hold this iconic trophy aloft,” concluded O’Rourke.

 

Director of D3 Design Clive Solari was honoured that his company was tasked with updating the design. 

“I am proud to say that the new trophy has a modern and clean design that will continue to maintain its iconic characteristics,” Solari said.

 

The Hyundai A-League 2017/18 Season kicks off next Friday night (6 October) when Melbourne City FC host Brisbane Roar FC in the opening match at AAMI Park.

Wednesday 28 June 2017

 

 

Football Federation Australia today released the eagerly anticipated Hyundai A-League 2017/18 Season draw.

 

The Hyundai A-League 2017/18 season will kick off with a trio of blockbusting rounds featuring a Big Blue (Sydney FC v Melbourne Victory) Grand Final rematch in Round 1, a Melbourne Derby in Round 2 followed by a Sydney Derby in Round 3.

 

Melbourne City FC will host Brisbane Roar FC at AAMI Park in the opening match of the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 Season. The following day will see an F3 Derby in the early game at Central Coast Stadium followed by the Big Blue at Etihad Stadium. Sunday’s matches start with Wellington Phoenix and Adelaide United meeting at Westpac Stadium and the first round will be completed when Perth Glory take on Western Sydney Wanderers FC at Spotless Stadium.

 

The Hyundai A-League 2018 Finals Series will begin on the weekend of 20-22 April with the Hyundai A-League 2018 Grand Final scheduled for the weekend of 5-6 May 2018.

 

Speaking today, FFA Head of Hyundai A-League & Westfield W-League, Greg O’Rourke, was excited about releasing the 13th edition of the competition draw.

 

“It gives me great pleasure to release the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 Season Draw under a new logo and brand identity,” said O’Rourke.

 

“Developing this draw has been a challenging process to accommodate the preferences of the clubs, venue availability and also the AFC Champions League 2018.

 

“We have added a new feature to this season’s draw with all clubs playing each other twice between rounds 1 to 18. The remaining nine rounds will see each club play each other once in the lead-up to the Hyundai A-League 2018 Finals Series. This stretch of nine Rounds will be known as “The Chase” with 27 points on offer in the run home to Round 27.

 

“This will be the first season of the Hyundai A-League under our new broadcast agreement with Fox Sports who have been a broadcast partner of the competition since 2005 and we are once again look forward to partnering with them.

 

“We are also very excited about working with our new Free-to-Air partner, Network Ten, who will be broadcasting the Harvey Norman Saturday night match and the Hyundai A-League 2018 Finals Series live.

 

“All in all, we believe that this draw will set the scene for another thrilling season of the Hyundai A-League,” concluded O’Rourke.
