Competition Structures in 2020

Capital Football is working towards the resumption of football matches, aligned to the easing of restrictions by the ACT and NSW Governments.

Capital Football is engaging with clubs to confirm team nominations, following which detailed match schedules will be shared with the football community.

We acknowledge that the football season has been reduced due to the impact of COVID-19. A discounted fee structure will be confirmed shortly. Once finalised, the discounted fees will be communicated along with information on the refund process for players who paid a full fee at the start of the year.

We extend our sincere thanks to everyone in the football community for your patience and support.
