AFL is a winter sport. Training will be cancelled only if the ground is closed by Centennial Parklands, or conditions are unsafe (such as lightning, hail or strong winds).

Centennial Parklands’ decision on whether to close the ground is made on the state of the Oval and not on whether it is actually raining on any particular day. On weekdays, Moore Park Tigers is usually notified of ground closures by about 9-10am. Each Team manager will let their team know how ground closure will be communicated amongst their team.

For those wanting more immediate and constant ground status information, go to the Centennial Parklands’ website Sport Field Status. This is where ground closures are posted first.

Team managers will also always advise if training or games have been cancelled due to adverse weather.
