Football Federation Australia and Capital Football have confirmed that the 2020 FFA National Futsal Championships, scheduled in Canberra from 13-17 January, will proceed as planned.
With the Air Quality Index (AQI) in Canberra forecast to be ‘good’ for the next seven days and following extensive discussions with the competing member federations and venues, the decision was made to go ahead with the Championships.
The AQI in venues will be closely monitored to ensure that FFA standards are met, with the safety of players, officials and spectators of paramount importance.
With more than a thousand people from interstate expected to come to Canberra for the event, the advice to those driving is to exercise caution and closely monitor the bushfire situation through the NSW Rural Fire Service and Country Fire Authority Victoria.
Information on the National Futsal Championships can be found at the 2020 FFA National Futsal Championships website.
Our thoughts and best wishes remain with those people across Australia who have been directly impacted by the devastating bushfires.
Donations to bushfire and drought appeal can be made at Rural Aid.
