Following the suspension of all football activities until at least 31 May 2020, Capital Football today announced plans to scale back its operations to ensure long-term financial viability through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Effective from 20 April 2020, all Capital Football staff will work reduced hours.
Capital Football CEO Phil Brown said football is facing a challenging couple of months.
“With the extension to the suspension of football, we needed to take steps to preserve the ongoing financial position of Capital Football and maintain our ability to operate once the risk of COVID-19 subsides,” Mr Brown said.
“The pandemic is impacting all levels of the game, however, it is important we remain appropriately staffed, and ready to respond should the suspension be lifted.
“Our team has worked tirelessly throughout the temporary suspension period in extremely difficult circumstances and continues to investigate innovative new ways of connecting with the local football community.
“I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the Capital Football staff, and the club committees, coaches, referees, players, and parents who have been extremely supportive and patient in the face of uncertainty.
“We will continue to work closely with FFA, Member Federations, our Standing Advisory Committees and Zone Council to support a return to football once it is safe to do so.”
