Football Federation Australia (FFA) today advised that,

in light of ongoing developments since its original

announcement, including stricter measures imposed by the

Federal Government in response to COVID-19,

the temporary suspension to

sanctioned grassroots football competitions

and associated training would remain in place until at least

31 May 2020.

 

FFA will continue to communicate material updates in the lead up to 31 May 2020.

In order to help the grassroots football community stay active and connected throughout the temporary suspension period, FFA recently launched an online Skills Hub, developed in association with each of Australia’s nine Member Federations. To access the Skills Hub and get involved with the #PlayAtHomeChallenge, please visit www.playfootball.com.au/skills-hub.

UPDATE From MFA


2.6.20

The MFA welcomes today's Government announcement, declaring a return to community sport for participants under the age of 18 from 1 July.

The MFA will continue to work with local clubs, local Councils, and Football NSW over the coming weeks to prepare for the return. ⚽️

6.5.20
The Board of the Macarthur Football Association have issued an open letter to the Football Family as we move closer towards a season start.

29.3.20
Please follow the link below on a Video update from MFA: 

25.3.2020

The MFA has just been part of a Football NSW virtual meeting in regard to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and the outcomes of this meeting are as follows:

 

  • 2020 State Cup is not proceeding - This decision was made in close consultation with Member Associations and allows for the focus to be on ensuring that clubs play as many matches as possible within their local competitions during 2020
  • Football activities remain suspended - at this stage FFA and Football NSW have not changed the original proposed recommencement date of 14 April 2020, however it is highly likely that in line with recent Government changes to limit the aggregation of people to 10 in outdoor spaces, that this date will be pushed out. To that end we will keep you all informed as to any changes as they are communicated to us.
  • The previously advised message in respect to refund of registrations continues to apply, that being that the season is currently deferred, not cancelled, and it is hoped that football will be able to recommence at some stage over the coming months
  • Football NSW will be forwarding a letter to each Club and each participant over the next 48 hours advising of their current position as well as communicating their sentiments to what is a difficult period for everyone wanting to get out on the field of play

 

We have a further meeting this Friday and will again communicate any outcomes immediately thereafter.

 

The MFA would like to ask you to take care of yourself, your loved ones and your community by following the advice of authorities during this remarkable period in our history.

 

Please stay healthy!



An update for the Football Family:

Football NSW convened a teleconference with all Associations this morning wherein the current state of play was discussed.

By way of update, we can advise:

We are working towards a return to Football activities from 14 April 2020 (although this is subject to change);

Competitions will commence on the first weekend in May should the 14 April resumption date not change. Our aim is to deliver a modified season with the time we have available to us.

Football NSW will be making further announcements shortly including an update on the State Cup.

The situation with Coronavirus is unprecedented and extremely dynamic.
Our highest priority is to minimise the risk of infection within the community and MFA will continue to heed the advice of the Federal and State Health Departments as well as our parent bodies in doing so.

A further discussion with our parent body will take place on Wednesday We will continue to provide you with updates as and when they come to hand.

The MFA will meet with Club President’s on Thursday evening to discuss the structure and deliver of a restructured season.

For now, stay healthy everyone.
