CEO Update – COVID-19


Good afternoon everyone,

Since Monday I have been in contact with Football NSW who have been liaising with other State Sporting Organisations and NSW Health regarding further recommendations released by the Chief Health Officer on Monday. NSW Health and the NSW Government have made it clear to SSO’s their desire for community sport to continue due to its vital role in society.

NSFA and grassroots football Associations have been granted permission to continue community football, spanning across LGA’s.

I would like to reiterate the following:

  • Maximum ONE spectator per participating player. Only parents and carers permitted. If non-essential, please stay home!
  • All spectators must social distance 1.5m – This is roughly the length of your umbrella, please use it!
  • No sharing drink bottles or food (e.g. Half time oranges)
  • No changerooms can be used.
  • Portable pitch-side BBQs are not permitted.
  • NSFA encourage the use of face masks for spectators
  • Spectators are required to position themselves on the opposite side of the field to the technical area (Manager, Coach, Players), or stand behind a fence where possible.

Any person/Club found to be acting in breach of the above NSFA directive will be investigated and the matter will be put forth before NSFA Protests, Disputes and Disciplinary Committee.
