Delayed start to community football in south-western Sydney

The NSWRL has today announced a two-week delay to the planned 18 July start (this weekend) of community football competitions in south-western Sydney due to the current COVID-19 outbreak in the area.

NSWRL Chief Executive David Trodden said the health and safety of participants, officials, spectators and the wider community remained the primary concern, with the competitions for under 6s to A-grade in these areas only now delayed until 1 August. The competitions affected are within the Wests Tigers Macarthur and Canterbury Districts and Group 6 Region.

“We have always maintained through this pandemic that we would remain flexible in our approach and fall in line with the most up-to-date information from the Government and health experts at that time,” Trodden said.

“While everyone has worked hard to get footy re-started and we would love to be kicking off across the entire state this weekend, it is important we remain vigilant to stop any potential avoidable spreading of the coronavirus.”

Individual teams (from those areas) playing in Combined Conference competitions will not be able to participate for two weeks until 1 August, but those competitions will continue under rule changes implemented by the NSWRL to adhere to government COVID-19 guidelines. The matches missed will be registered as a draw for both teams.
