Cricket competitions across the country were cancelled amid the coronavirus crisis and Armidale District felt the pinch with the grand finals called off.
The final matches were scheduled for March 21 but with the call to end competitions on the Tuesday prior, no one took the field.
The association gave clubs affected the option of declaring joint premiers or playing a grand final prior to the 2020-21 season.
The senior grand finals were due to be between City UNE and Guyra in first grade, Guyra and TAS in second grade and third grade was meant to be City and Hillgrove.
Association president Mike Porter said they met last Wednesday and came up with the final decision to share the spoils.
"Both teams were there and represented on the night and agreed that it would be joint premiers because there would be too much change going into next season," he said.
"We put the proposal to them to play at the start of next season, but they preferred to just take the joint premiership because there are too many unknowns."
Porter said they have already started planning for next season with work on the indoor training facility not far off commencing.
"We have got enough money to do stage one.
"We are trying to get a couple of contract things through council and through the contractors and we will be ordering the shed.
Stage one will be four indoor lanes fully fitted out and stage two, we are waiting for another grant application to come back to us, with toilets, change rooms, offices and things.
"It will be a great asset for our sport, especially for our kids.
"As soon as we get the contract signed we will be moving forward with that."
After drought played havoc on the season, Porter said the association also has plans to purchase a water tank for security.
"Hopefully, if we have got a bit of money to spare, we are going to order a 110,000 l tank to put on the side of it," he said.
"And we have also received funding from NSW Cricket, as of two weeks ago, to buy our own little trailer water tanker if we get caught short as well."
