With the ACT Government’s announcement of an extended lockdown, Capital Football has confirmed that all football and futsal activities will be suspended from 5pm, Thursday August 12 to 5pm, Thursday September 2. This includes all training sessions, games, face-to-face meetings and events. Let’s stay home and hope that football can return next weekend.
On behalf of the Majura FC committee and club, the President of Majura FC hopes you are all safe and well. For those of you that are in isolation please take care and we look forward to seeing you once this is all over. We have all seen Sydney and Melbourne go through lockdowns, now it is our turn. We encourage everyone to follow the ACT Health advice and take the necessary precautions.
Majura FC teams were training at Dickson fields in the days prior to the lockdown. The committee knows which teams were training, the fields they were training on and their training times. In the event that there is a COVID-19 link to training we will work with ACT Health to ensure the affected families are notified. ACT Health will make the decision whether to list Dickson fields as an exposure site and we will follow their advice. Please check the ACT Government’s COVID-19 website for current information and exposure sites.
There is no news yet about the remaining games in the football season. A number of sports codes met yesterday to discuss this matter. Football clubs are meeting with Capital Football later this week. We will keep you all posted as information comes in.
At this time of year we ask teams to put forward their nominations for Coach of the Year so please do that while we’re locked down. More information about the process is below and nominations are due by 3 September 2021.
