The MFA together with its member clubs, have agreed to place all Round 1 fixtures on hold. This includes matches that were scheduled on the synthetic field at Nott Oval.
Many grounds across the region are simply not safe for play due to the large amount of rainfall we have experienced over the past month or so. Councils have found it very difficult to maintain and set-up many fields due to the conditions.
We will continue to work with our clubs and local Councils with the aim to kick-off Round 2 match as scheduled, commencing Friday, 8 April 2022. Of course, much of this will again depend on the weather conditions.
The MFA will attempt to reschedule Round 1 fixtures later in the year. This will be communicated via the member clubs.
Regarding Round 3 M-League matches, the MFA is working with clubs to schedule as many of these games as possible at Nott Oval and Lynwood Park. M-League players and officials will be kept informed by their clubs.
Thank you for your understanding. We hope to get all players, coaches and referees on the pitch soon.
