Central Coast Football statement:
Central Coast Football take the health and safety of football participants including players, coaches, officials, staff, and volunteers across all levels of the game very seriously.
As you are no doubt aware, COVID-19 is a quickly-evolving global situation.
After discussion with our clubs, Football NSW and after taking on board the government advice around gatherings of people and trying to assist in “flattening the curve” Central Coast Football has made the decision to suspend all Football activity until April 14, 2020. All football activity includes all games, training, meetings, courses and any other Football related event.
We have currently a plan to start the Football Season with some grades on Sunday 26 April and the remainder on the first weekend in May. Should this change we will notify all stakeholders.
At this time Pluim Park will be closed to the public until April 14.
CCF will use this shutdown period to gather further information to assist our stakeholders in addressing issues related to participating in grass roots sport and minimising risk when Football recommences.
CCF will continue to monitor the situation and will continue provide updates to the Central Coast Football community as they come to hand.
