The scoresheet reads: COVID-19 1 vs Futsal 0.
FFA yesterday convened a meeting of the National COVID-19 Working Committee and the Presidents of
the State Body Members to further discuss football’s response to COVID-19. After careful
consideration and having regard to the feedback received from the grassroots community, FFA
advises that effective from 12:00am on 18 March 2020, all sanctioned grassroots football
activity in Australia will be suspended until 14 April 2020. For Tablelands Futsal, due to school holidays, this will be April 20th
The suspension applies to all sanctioned matches and competitions, including National Premier
Leagues, FFA Cup, youth and grassroots football (including MiniRoos and futsal) as well as training
and associated football related activities.
FFA recognises that this is very disruptive for the football community and we thank you for your
understanding while we work through this difficult time. FFA will continue to closely monitor all
COVID-19 developments in consultation with the Federal Government and its National COVID-19
Working Committee and will provide updates to the football community as the latest information
becomes available and in advance of 14 April 2020.
Further information in relation to this Circular is available via FFA’s press release available at
