COVID-19 Important Update for 2020 Season
20 March 2020
Dear Players and Families,
As you are aware Football Federation Australia (FFA) this week issued a temporary suspension of all football activities in Australia due to the COVID-19 situation until 14 April.
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.
SGFA Clubs and or teams may be sanctioned or fined for any breach of this directive.
This is an unprecedented situation that is fluid and fast moving. St George Football Association (SGFA) is working with our State governing body, Football NSW, who is in turn constantly liaising with FFA and relevant Government agencies, and everyone is committed to keeping you informed and up to date in these rapidly changing times.
The SGFA Board confirmed the following will be implemented for season 2020, if the current environment does not worsen over this period:
• Training will recommence from Tuesday, 14 April 2020;
• Round 1 will commence Friday, 1 May 2020.
The season may have some changes in the format of play but we will continue to update you with any information as its released from SGFA. As things evolve, we want to keep you updated.
