Football West response to three-step roadmap

Football West News

Following the latest announcement from Prime Minister Scott Morrison, football in WA is preparing for the next step towards recommencement.

The Prime Minister today unveiled a three-step roadmap for reopening Australia. Of particular interest is step two, which will allow up to 20 people to partake in community sports.


Our aim is simple, for football to be played at all levels when and where we are able to, and in whatever form.

Western Australia is already in step one, following the State Government’s decision to increase the limit on people gathering to 10 people. Football West then announced a resumption of limited football activity, as long as it complies with government guidelines.

In the background, our Associations and Clubs have been working hard on the preparations for returning to play, including the necessary discussions with local authorities.

We recognise the challenge ahead for everyone and we will continue to provide further guidelines and resources to assist clubs, players, match officials and volunteers to get the ball back on the pitch when we are given the go ahead.

We look forward to further news from WA Premier Mark McGowan, who will give an update this Sunday on the Government’s position.

Until then, we urge our members to continue to follow the expert medical health advice, maintain social distancing and stay safe. We also encourage those who haven’t downloaded the Federal Government’s COVIDsafe app to do so.

We will provide a further update in the coming days as we receive further advice from Government.
