Last month, FFA and Australia's nine Member Federations, suspended grassroots football until April 14 due to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.
In light of ongoing developments since that announcement, including stricter measures imposed by the Federal Government in response to COVID-19, the temporary suspension to sanctioned grassroots football competitions has today been extended through to at least May 31, 2020.

FFA, together with its Member Federations, will continue to communicate and monitor the COVID-19 situation in the lead up to May 31, 2020, and remain optimistic that football competitions will be able to take place in 2020. The safety of the football community remains our top priority at this time, with the health and wellbeing of our football family to be at the forefront of any decisions made regarding the resumption of play.
In order to help the grassroots football community stay active and connected throughout the temporary suspension period, FFA recently launched an online Skills Hub, developed in association with each of Australia's nine Member Federations. To access the Skills Hub and get involved with the #PlayAtHomeChallenge, please visit the FFA Skills Hub.
