Important COVID-19 Update- All Football Activity Suspended Until 14 April 2020

Dear Members

This afternoon the Football Federation Australia (FFA) issued a circular providing a COVID-19 update for all member federations.

Please be advised that the FFA circular basically announces that:
“FFA today convened a meeting of the National COVID-19 Working Committee and the Presidents of the State Body Members to further discuss football’s response to COVID-19. After careful consideration and having regard to the feedback received from the grassroots community, FFA advises that effective from 12:00am on 18 March 2020, all sanctioned grassroots football activity in Australia will be suspended until 14 April 2020.

The suspension applies to all sanctioned matches and competitions, including National Premier Leagues, FFA Cup, youth and grassroots football (including MiniRoos and futsal) as well as training and associated football related activities.

FFA recognises that this is very disruptive for the football community and we thank you for your understanding while we work through this difficult time. FFA will continue to closely monitor all COVID-19 developments in consultation with the Federal Government and its National COVID-19 Working Committee and will provide updates to the football community as the latest information becomes available and in advance of 14 April 2020.”

The Moreland City Football Club committee will continue to provide you with updates as they are provided to us, particularly in relation to changes to the competition and resumption of football activities.

If you have any queries please contact us via email on: info@morelandcityfc.com.au.

Finally, on behalf of the committee I’d like to express the sentiment that we hope you all stay well and we are optimistic that the experts are doing their best to minimise the impact of this virus on our community.
