With the ACT Government’s announcement that the Territory will enter a seven-day lockdown, Capital Football confirms that all football and futsal activities will be suspended from 5pm Thursday 12th August, 2021 to 5pm Thursday 19th August, 2021.
This includes all training sessions and competition matches and all face-to-face meetings or events.
NSW residents of clubs in Capital Football competitions can continue to train in NSW according to the NSW Health order relevant to where they live.
Clubs in NSW can play MiniRoos matches, and non-competitive friendly matches among teams from their club, where only NSW residents are involved.
The ACT Government has declared all of NSW a COVID affected area. For residents in the surrounding NSW region, if you live in one of the approved postcodes you may enter the ACT for essential work and healthcare reasons only, and will not need an exemption. If you live outside these postcodes, you can only enter the ACT for essential work or healthcare reasons, and will require an exemption.
We will provide further updates when more is known from the ACT Government about the Public Health Order.
Following the announcement of the ACT lockdown, the ACT Government has declared of all NSW as a COVID affected area. This declaration may present challenges to the scheduling of matches across our competitions should it remain in place when the ACT lockdown is lifted.
Capital Football staff will be working remotely and remain available to assist. We will remain in regular contact with clubs to share our planning as more information becomes available.
Please stay safe and we look forward to getting back out on the field as soon as it’s safe to do so. Stay up to date with the latest ACT Health advice, here.
