The Football Federation Australia has released a statement suspending all community football activities, effective from 12:00am on 18 March 2020, all sanctioned grassroots football activity in Australia will be suspended until 14 April 2020.
The below directive has then come from Blacktown District Soccer Football Association:
- Effective immediately, all games, training and other football activities must cease;
- No competitions/leagues will commence at this stage, and any that have already started, will be suspended until 14 April 2020.
- Any football activity which takes place during this period is not sanctioned by the Association nor Football NSW and, therefore, the Personal Accident insurance cover that is provided as part of a player’s registration may not apply
This means that there will be no trial games, meet and greets or commencement of the season until 14th April 2020.
At this point the season is only delayed so there will be no refunds of registrations.
BDSFA have a board meeting tomorrow night and we will endeavour to communicate as we learn more.
