FQ statement on the suspension of football activity
March 17, 2020
As you are aware, COVID-19 continues to be an evolving situation in Australia and across the world.
Following ongoing consultation and collaboration with Football Federation Australia (FFA) in achieving a united position, the Football Queensland (FQ) Board of Directors earlier resolved to immediately postpone all Football Queensland administered, and all Football Queensland zone administered competitions effective immediately, including all training and associated football related activities.
Working collaboratively with FQ zones, who were informed of this decision at lunchtime today, followed an ongoing assessment of the situation regarding COVID-19 based on consultation with other Member Federations and the FFA.
Further details on the national position on COVID-19 and latest update on football participation from FFA can be viewed here.
