On January 29th, 2022 the NFC will hold its Annual General Meeting in which it will carry out its annual corporate activities, but also make preparations for the upcoming 2022 Season. the NFC had to suspend league season games in 2020 and 2021 largely due to the complexities involved with clubs operating tackle football teams in light of the wide variety of Covid 19 restrictions in place across the league.
Each club requires months of preparations ranging from player recruitment to sponsorships and establishing partnerships with local businesses as well as navigating the securing of practice and game day facilities. These tasks were made impossible to properly execute given the degree of uncertainty surrounding Covid restrictions across all 10 NFC centers.Member clubs need some degree of certainty between March and August to properly execute a meaningful season to the standards the NFC clubs aim to provide their fans and players.
There appears to be light at the end of the tunnel with most of the world, determined to learn to live with the virus, seems to be letting go of crippling and damaging restrictions. We hope Canada will follow suit and open the door for the NFC to have a full and rewarding season in summer 2022.
Stay tuned here for more information following the January 29th Annual General Meeting.
