ANNOUNCEMENT
2020 Season

Tuesday 17th March

The Sunshine Coast Football Board would like to confirm that after careful consideration it is their decision to suspend the Sunshine Coast Football 2020 season until after Easter in the light of recent developments in Australia with regard to COVID-19. All matches will cease effective immediately. This relates to matches administered and sanctioned by Sunshine Coast Football.

Senior and Junior competitive and MiniRoos matches will re-commence / commence on Friday 17th April and Saturday 18th April.

The number of total matches for competitive teams will not be impacted however a small amount of mid week matches will be required for most divisions.
Due to advice regarding cancelling of all non-essential, organised gatherings of more than 500 people, MiniRoos carnivals will be reviewed. This may result in a morning / afternoon split of teams to limit numbers or a movement of a number of teams per age groups to alternate venues.
The decision to suspend the season has been made in the best interests of our affiliated clubs, volunteers, players, spectators, team officials and match officials given the current uncertainty.
Clubs should continue to be guided by the most up to date government advice surrounding the COVID-19 virus.
Should anything change Sunshine Coast Football will provide an immediate update.

***********************************************************


In light of this decision we will be sadly cancelling all training until (at this stage) - until the 13th April 2020. We will also continue to be guided by the government advice and keep you up to date regarding our 2020 Season. 

Thank you again for your understanding and patience in this extremely challenging time for everyone.
