Norway - Toppserien

There are four Matildas currently rostered to Norwegian Toppserien teams. Clare Polkinghorne and Katrina Gorry are with Avaldsnes IL, Tameka Yallop is with Klepp IL and Karly Roestbakken are with LSK Kvinner.

Earlier in May it was announced that the 2020 season, which had originally been postponed, would be held this year starting July 11.  There have since been reports that this could be moved forward to the beginning of July.

The Toppserien will receive 1.1 million KR a month to cover the Norwegian Football Federation training and safety protocol. These funds will be distributed amongst clubs.  The NFF have also reprioritized other funds to support the league according to reports.

A complete schedule has yet to be released, as has the details of whether a full or a shortened season will take place.  A return to training date has also not been specified.

By latest accounts, all four Norwegian playing Matildas are still in Australia.  Like their NWSL counterparts they will not be able to return for the upcoming season unless the current travel restrictions change.

Sweden - Damallsvenskann

There is one Matilda contracted in Sweden, Elise Kellond-Knight.  She plays for Kristianstad DFF.  Kellond-Knight returned to Sweden prior to travel restrictions and according to her Instagram is still in the country.

The Damallsvenskann had been planned to start on June 14, after it had been postponed several times from its original April 3 start date.  

It was hoped that the 2020 Damallsvenskann could play a full season by playing through the previously planned Olympic break which is no longer needed.  

However, it was recently reported that the start date has been pushed back to at earliest a June 27 start.  Should the season be further delayed it is expected that a single round season of eleven matches will be played instead of a full home-away twenty two round season.  

No schedule or return to training has yet to be announced.
