AMA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS – STATEMENT BY LOC AND AMA

AMA and the Brisbane LOC are announcing that the National Championships to be held in Brisbane in 2020 will be cancelled and not rescheduled this year. The next championships will be held in Canberra in 2021. This decision has been forced on the Local Organizing Committee by social distancing restrictions implemented by the Australian Government in response to the current coronavirus pandemic.

We understand that this decision will be disappointing to many but given the current uncertainty of how this pandemic will progress we are not in a position to commit to a rescheduling of the Championships this year.

The Local Organising Committee appreciates that the Government’s restrictions will have financial consequences—particularly for those outside Brisbane with respects to travel and accommodation. They will report on the matter of refunds of registration fees in due course.
