NSFA Covid-19 Update - 8 July 2021
Please refer the following update from NSFA CEO, Ed Ferguson.
As per the NSW Government announcement on Thursday 8 July 2021, we will be in lockdown until 11:59pm Friday 16th July.
As per the directive from Football NSW, all football activity during this time is suspended and therefore participants are not covered by our Personal Accident insurance.
The Competitions Department has put together two competition calendars. One is for the return of football on the 17th July and the other is for the 24th July. Further updates will be released if the season is postponed beyond the 24th July.
MiniRoos - will resume as per the competition fixtures, with a re-grade occurring as normally scheduled.
Finals Series - Cancelled.
NSFA’s overarching principle when determining the competition schedule/format is ‘Maximising game time for every player’. We want to ensure that all teams are playing games right up until the last weekend of the season which is why we have made the decision to cancel Finals.
Cups & Shields – Cancelled.
All Cup & Shield competitions have also been cancelled. Our priority is completing all competitions which will require games to be played mid-week. Unfortunately, we do not have enough weeks left in the season to schedule cup & shield fixtures.
