Australian Grand Prix cancelled

Updated: F1 organisers cancel event after Vic. Premier says no crowds will attend.

The F1 Australian Grand Prix has been cancelled due to concerns around coronavirus.

Race officials made the decision following updated medical advice from Victoria’s chief health officer.

It follows Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews saying no spectators would be allowed due to public health concerns. He advised F1 organisers had a choice to cancel the event or running an event with no spectators.

In a statement, organisers said all ticket holders would receive a full refund.

“Our first priority is the safety of everyone including attendees, our personnel, all event partners and members of the local community,” the Australian Grand Prix Corporation said.

FOX Sports and Network 10 are both broadcasters of the Australian Grand Prix.

    1. None…..

      I don’t think we will see NRL/AFL cancelled completely – I reckon we may see matches played with no spectators….though the atmosphere of even watching that on TV wouldn’t be wonderful.

        1. but even then you are putting players trainers medical staff coaching at risk if a player or a family member of anyone involved has it , for games to go ahead everyone involved would need to get tested first before any game takes place even if no crowds

    2. Seven may bring Big Brother forward seeing it has started filming, perhaps they could bring it in live now, even resurrect the Games part for Friday or Saturday Night (It’s A Knock Out kind of).
