The escalation of the COVID-19 situation has presented significant challenges to our society. With so many in our community connected to football, for us, it is widely felt.
Unfortunately, the fear of the unknown has in some cases brought out the worst in us. What we need at this very challenging time, more than ever before, is to be compassionate and caring to those around us, especially to those most vulnerable.
As you know, Football Federation Australia has taken the decision to postpone all football activities for the period 18 March to 14 April 2020. This includes all matches, training, education courses, meetings and anything else connected to the game we play, officiate, coach and spectate.
We appreciate this will be frustrating to some. We believe that this precautionary measure will help as we all seek to reduce the risk of the virus spreading. By taking this decision, we as a football community show our care and compassion for those most vulnerable among us. The decision to not play football will reduce the chance of the virus spreading to those who it will impact most.
At the moment, the Capital Football offices remain open, however, we ask that people do not visit. If you have a question, please send it to us by email or give our staff a call.
If there is a need in the near future to further isolate as a community, we are ready to continue to work and service the football community from remote locations. Should that scenario eventuate we will provide details on how to contact us. This will be shared directly with you, and for the broader community on our website and social media pages.
Thank you for your support during these testing times, and again, please extend as much care and compassion to your neighbours and those most vulnerable as we tackle this crisis together as a community.
