Good Afternoon Football Family,
I hope this message finds you all safe and healthy during this unprecedented event that is unfolding around the world.
After yesterdays’ announcement from FFA and Football Queensland suspending all football related activities and postponing the 2020 FNQ football competition until the start of July, I would like to give everyone in our football the confidence that we will see a competition in 2020, we will be back on the park and we will all have the opportunity to enjoy the game we all love so much, it just might look a little different then what we are used to.
Since the first announcement of the suspension back in March, FNQ Football has been hoping for the best, but planning for the worst, immediately liaising with club executive’s, whom despite being all volunteers, despite still facing the same challenges we are all facing, have still put time and effort into ensuring our sport comes out the other end of the period strong as ever.
I know we are facing huge challenges at this point in time, no one was prepared for this, no one knew what was coming, but like a family we must all stick together, work together, work through the challenge In-front of us, and before we know it we will be back on the pitch playing, refing, coaching and supporting the game we all love.
Despite the issues we are now currently facing, could I please ask for some patience with your club committee members, they are all volunteers and are all trying to work their way through this process at club land, whilst also caring and ensuring for the safety of their families and loved ones, which at this current point in time is the most important thing that we need be worrying about.
Protecting the health and wellbeing of our players, staff, members and fans is our first priority. Part of that is also doing our best as a zone, clubs and as individuals to contain and delay the spread of the virus as a community, to give our health services the best possible chance to deal with the sick and to better protect the more vulnerable members of our community.
With everything aside, FNQ football is 100% preparing for a 2020 FNQ Football season, together with club executives we have been putting together options for how a 2020 season may look, below is just one example.
In difficult times, football brings hope, happiness and enjoyment to people and we know that that’s an important role FNQ Football can play in 2020.
We are determined to play that role.
Once again, thank you for you all your contributions and being part of the FNQ football family, stay safe and healthy, and we’ll be in touch with further updates as soon as we can.
