Dear Football Brisbane Community,
Last week Football Brisbane engaged with all 80 of our clubs to discuss the current COVID-19 situation. Clubs have given input into how competitions can be delivered as well as the impacts their club faces based on several different start dates in 2020.
Football Brisbane and the clubs remain united in our commitment to provide a season of football to our community when the government restrictions allow us to do so.
In line with advice received from Football Queensland (FQ) the suspension of the season and all football activities will be extended until 30 June 2020.
Football Federation Australia (FFA) has indicated that they will review the current situation on 31 May 2020 which will provide us with adequate lead time to determine whether a return on the 30 June remains viable. Football Brisbane will take into account the circumstances and government advice at that time to enable clubs to resume operations prior to the season commencing.
Should this suspension be relaxed earlier, Football Brisbane anticipates it will be able to begin competitions within three weeks of any reassessment date.
Football Brisbane would like to thank the clubs for the feedback they provided and their willingness to collaborate with each other and ourselves during this unprecedented period.
Football Brisbane will hold fortnightly meetings with the clubs to provide updates and receive further feedback as we work through this as a community.
Jeremy Medina Chairman
Football Brisbane Board
