The recent QLD-NSW border closure has resulted in some senior & junior players not being able to participate for their primary registered club, as they reside in one State and their club is in the other State.
With the Queensland Government advising the border closure will not be reviewed until the end of August, AFLQ believes those affected players should be given the opportunity to continue to play in 2020 in the State they reside in, as such the following shall occur;
- Any current AFLQ player who is primary registered with a club in NSW, but permanently resides in Queensland, can play for a Queensland club of their choice via a Type 3 Temporary Transfer.
- Any current AFLQ player who is primary registered with a club in Queensland, but permanently resides in NSW, can play for a NSW club of their choice via a Type 3 Temporary Transfer.
- Normal finals qualifications shall apply.
- If a player elects to take this option, they will not be eligible to return to their primary registered club in 2020.
- Any Senior level player who goes from a club in one State to a club in another State won’t attract player penalty points, they will simply be reassessed under the Player Points System.
Note: Any player who receives a Type 3 Temporary Transfer shall remain primary registered at their current club, as they cannot be cleared as the clearance window has closed.
Because a Type 3 Temporary Transfer needs to be set up in the system between competitions, a club wishing to temporarily sign a player must contact their Competition Manager before entering the Type 3 Temporary Transfer.
Please be mindful those looking to approve transfers, all transfers will appear in the 2021 window.
If you have any questions, please contact your Competition Manager.
