Due to the suspension of football and a partial season delivery of the 2020 season Capital Football has reduced their registration fees and will be offering a refund to eligible participants.


The partial Refund Request Form closed on 18 July and we have started the verification process

We are still accepting submissions, however these will not be processed until AFTER THE SEASON IS COMPLETED.


What is being refunded?

Registration fees are made up of fees from Capital Football, FFA, and your club.

Capital Football

Capital Football will cut its portion of player and referee registration fees by 50 percent, with players and referees who registered for the 2020 winter season before the revised fee was implemented (19 June) refunded a portion of their fee.

The Football Infrastructure Levy (FIL) component will remain in place to support facility projects which are not directly connected to the delivery of the 2020 winter season.

Football Federation Australia

FFA’s National Registration Fee (NRF) component of Capital Football’s registration fees will remain in place.

Club

Clubs have set their own refunds based on registration fees and the associated costs that have already been undertaken. If you have any questions about the possibility of a club portion refund and how much their refund is, please contact your club. There is also an option to donate the club portion of your refund back to the club in the form.


The Partial refund process

To ensure a streamlined process for all participants, Capital Football will be refunding the governing body refund to all eligible participants, along with any club refunds available for clubs who have indicated they would like assistance.

All participants who registered and paid for the 2020 winter season prior to 19 June, and are active in Play Football will be eligible for the Capital Football registration fee partial refund.

Participants who paid online after 19 June may still be eligible for a club refund depending on whether the club reduced their fees and when this was implemented in Play Football system. Please check with your club if you are unsure.

From Monday 29 June, an online form will be available for all participants to fill out to request their partial refund.

If you are not sure whether to fill out the form, please do so as we will be able to determine your eligibility.

Players will have until 18 July to fill out an online form. After this, Capital Football will confirm all registrations and then invoice clubs for payment of the club fee where applicable in the first week of August. Once payment has been received from clubs, refunds will be issued to players. We anticipate that this will occur towards the end of the season and hopefully sooner.
