READ FFA CIRCULAR HERE
Football West notes the following important considerations:
- The Circular reflects the latest position based on current Government and Medical advice available as of Monday at 3pm (AEDT) and incorporates the human element and feedback we have been receiving from Member Federations
- We are dealing with live issues, FFA is monitoring the situation and the rapidly changing environment within our own football community
- FFA will continue to work with the National COVID-19 Working Group to consider the latest advice and update our position accordingly. We anticipate holding the next working group meeting tomorrow morning to assess the latest developments and further assess our response to the challenges posed by COVID-19
- The Circular includes an acknowledgement that Competition Administrators across Australia may, in response to the exceptional circumstances posed by COVID-19, take decisions based on the facts and circumstances relevant to their Competition. We are very mindful that each Competition will be faced with various issues as a result of COVID-19 and we are willing to support each Member Federation and competition administrator to traverse these issues having regard to the relevant competition rules and the National Registration Regulations. Such measures may include rescheduling matches, postponing or as a last resort, cancelling football activity
