After yesterday's news that the WFNL is returning this weekend, new details have come to the fore surrounding the number of patrons that can attend this weekend's matches.
As of 11:59pm tonight (Thursday night), all community sport can go ahead with 150 people in attendance.
Speaking to the Wimmera Mail-Times, AFL Wimmera-Mallee manager Jason Muldoon confirmed that the 150 attendees would include players and officials while they are on and off the field.
"We're going to try and make it work," Muldoon said.
"It does make it awfully tough, so we're going to have to think outside the square a bit, but there's a real determination to play.
"The WFNL board have pushed to play, and we're going to try.
"There's lots of reasons why you shouldn't, but the underlying reason is we need to. We need to get footy and netball back."
The Mail-Times also understands that some clubs in the WFNL will be setting up separate venues for football and netball this week.
