Football and netball in the MDFL and MDNA will return to play on Saturday, with the league confirming matches will go ahead in line with Victorian Government restrictions.
The State Government announced on Tuesday that community sport for all ages could resume from Wednesday.
However, while participants can train and play in competition, spectators will not be permitted for at least another two weeks.
In line with the restrictions, the league has confirmed games will go ahead, with no crowds in attendance.
"It is 100 per cent confirmed," league president John Box said.
"I have rang all the home clubs, the away clubs and the board and we are keen to go.
"The clubs understand, but they are concerned with how it may be policed, but they are all keen and understand where we are all at and what we have to do."
Round 14 of the Mininera fixture was scheduled to be played on Saturday, and it is these fixtures that will be played as it is one of two remaining rounds where two clubs are yet to meet.
Mr Box said clubs would receive an email from the league with further details about requirements for Saturday's matches.
"Everyone was quite happy and everyone is dying to get back playing sport," he said.
"All the clubs are doing it hard this year.
"Most clubs have haven't had their ball or social outings and so all the clubs are feeling the pain.
"There's been no funding coming in and everyone has been forced to cancel things, but everyone is in the same boat and that's where we are at."
In line with the state government's restrictions outside of players, only people required to facilitate training and competition - teachers, instructors, trainers, coaches, umpires, carers, parents and guardians - are permitted to attend.
Training and competition venues will carry a density quotient of one person per four square metre.
The WFNL are yet to formally announce their plans for their return to play.
