BC Football Conference to decide on season Wednesday night

BCFC season on the line

Wednesday is decision day for the BC Football Conference.

League executives and representatives from each of the six member teams will meet Wednesday evening to determine whether to try and salvage a season.

If the league does try and forge ahead, plans, as they currently stand, would include a six-game schedule, with games beginning the weekend of Sept. 19 and 20.

However, standing in the way of any possible return, is the province's return to play protocol.

"At this time, and for the foreseeable future, no contact sports will have the ability to start with respect to game and competition play," viaSport stated in an email to Castanet seeking clarification.

Football activities, as well as other sports, can resume provided they are skills and training based, and can adhere to physical distancing and group size guidelines.

Those restrictions would have to be lifted before the league could return to the field.

There has been no indication from provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry as to when the guidelines may be relaxed.

It is also expected any return would have to be done without fans in the stands.
