What’s Happening this Summer at Majura FC

Gear Return and Participation Awards We are having a Covid Safe gear return day at the Majura Clubhouse on Saturday 30 October and will be giving out trophies/medallions to teams when they return their gear. To limit numbers, just the team coach and/or manager will be asked to return the training kit with bibs washed and the complete set of playing shirts also washed. They can then collect their teams awards and organise their own small function to hand out awards.

Season 2021 Declared Done

Dear Majura Family and Friends, I hope this message finds you safe and well. Capital Football have made the decision to end all 2021 winter competitions. While no one in the football community wanted the season to end this way, given the extended lockdown and the ACT sportsground availability, this was the most practical decision by Capital Football. I certainly missed being on the grounds for the last day of the season. Handing out trophies and sharing stories about the season while enjoying one last curry. Unfortunately this will have to wait for another year. In moving forward, your committee will discuss the logistics for kit and uniform returns, trophy collection and the like. Of course this will be pending ACT restrictions. There is a l lot to sort out so please look for future messages from the club. While we digest the news about 2021 I will give you something to look forward to. Your committee is busy planning the summer football program and the 2022 season. We will launch our summer football program with a selection of options including social soccer and our performance academy. We will apply for the 2022 Capital Premier League Boys competition and anticipate holding trials in
