MCDFNL Operations Manager Matt Lindsay was pleased to have the fixture locked away early in preparation for season 2020.
“The MCDFNL is pleased to announce its fixture and is happy with the structure it has put in place, implementing a rolling fixture at the clubs request” Lindsay said.
“The fixture is set is stone but there may be some minor changes that need to occur throughout the season or as the season gets closer, particularly as clubs are granted the option of playing a marquee game on ANZAC day. Thanks, must go to the club delegates and councils for making a difficult task as easy as possible.”
