We will continue to keep you updated with more news and essential information as it comes to hand.

Stay safe everyone and we look forward to seeing everyone back in a month.

FQ STATEMENT ON THE SUSPENSION OF FOOTBALL ACTIVITY

As you are aware, COVID-19 continues to be an evolving situation in Australia and across the world. 

Following ongoing consultation and collaboration with Football Federation Australia (FFA) in achieving a united position, the Football Queensland (FQ) Board of Directors earlier resolved to immediately postpone all Football Queensland administered, and all Football Queensland zone administered competitions effective immediately, including all training and associated football related activities.  

Working collaboratively with FQ zones, who were informed of this decision at lunchtime today, followed an ongoing assessment of the situation regarding COVID-19 based on consultation with other Member Federations and the FFA.  

Further details on the national position on COVID-19 and latest update on football participation from FFA can be viewed here.

Easts FC statement to Members and Players

With the Federal Government and now Football Federation of Australia issuing guidance as to the impacts on our game, Easts FC has made the following decisions to minimise the risks within our Club.

Effective immediately, ALL Miniroos and Komodo teams from Under 6 through to Under 11 that are not due to start competition until May, will have training CANCELLED until further notice.

Those teams already in competition NPL, NPLW, BYPL, Divisional and SAP will continue as normal pending any future guidance from the Governments, FFA and FQ.

For the teams still training we request:

  1. Just 1 parent drop your child at training and games and ask all family members if you are not essential to be involved in the game, that you stay at home so we can maximise the social distancing regulations being handed down.
  2. All children MUST bring their own water bottles and do not share such.
  3. Reiterate to your children that they need to perform safe hygiene practices such as washing their hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

As more guidance information comes to hand we will continue to update our members and players.

Football Queensland Statement

Good Afternoon Clubs,

Football Federation Australia (FFA) has today issued a circular providing an update to members regarding COVID-19 Guidelines for Football.

Please find the FFA Circular attached.

COVID-19 Guidelines for Football

 All football participants must play a role if we are to help slow the spread of COVID-19, including people organising, attending or supporting attendance at football activities.

Effective 16 March 2020, the following guidelines should be adhered to for all football activities, including training and matches.

  1. Before participating in football activities

Participants should not present to participate in football if they:

  1. have any flu-like symptoms;
  2. have been in direct contact with a known case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days;
  3. have travelled internationally or been exposed to a person with COVID-19 in the preceding 14 days; or
  4. are at a high risk from a health perspective, including the elderly and those with pre-existing medical heath conditions.
  5. Attendance at football activities
  • Only essential participants should attend football activities, i.e. players, coaches, match officials, staff and volunteers involved in operations and parents/guardians of participants;
  • Only attend as close as practical to the start of any football activity and leave as practically possible after;
  • Children to be accompanied by not more than one parent or guardian, if possible.
  1. Practice social distancing at football activities
  • Amend pre and post-match protocols so players and officials do not touch each other, e.g. no shaking hands, no walk out with player mascots;
  • When spectating or attending at a football match/training, ensure you keep a distance of 1.5 metres between yourself and others;
  • Restrict access to changeroom areas to only players, officials and essential staff;
  • If watching football and confined to a small area nearby other people, seek to move around the facility to avoid close contact with others.
  1. Hygiene and Behaviour

 Hygiene:

  • Ensure spaces at each facility, surfaces and objects are regularly cleaned with Disinfectant;
  • Provide hand washing guidance (http://www.who.int/gpsc/clean_hands_protection/en/);
  • Promote regular and thorough hand washing by staff and participants;
  • Provide sanitising hand rub dispensers in prominent places around the event (particularly entry or high use areas such as a registration desk, change rooms, toilets or kiosk);
  • Make sure hand rub dispensers are regularly refilled.

Behaviour:

  • Cover mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze;
  • Provide bins and put used tissues in the bin straight away;
  • Wash hands with soap and water often;
  • Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available;
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell;
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.

Organisation of football activities:

  • Promote preventive actions amongst participants – lead by example;
  • Plan ways to reduce in-person contact for participants and staff;
  • Plan for increased levels of staff/volunteer absences;
  • Keep volunteers, staff and participants informed of actions being taken.

Football Queensland has been closely monitoring the situation as the health and safety of all members of the Queensland football community remains our priority.

Football Queensland will continue to work with FFA to provide updates as the latest information becomes available.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

By | Juniors, Non-NPL Seniors, NPL News, Press Releases, SAP, Senior Mens, Senior Womens | No Comments

Dear Members, Players, Coaches, Managers and Parents

Eastern Suburbs Football Club (“Easts”) attaches below a recent memorandum from Football Queensland on the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Easts strongly recommends everyone reads this memo, along with the reading the links regarding how to reduce the risk of contacting the Coronavirus.

Of particular and practical importance is to ensure:

  1. Using thorough handwashing techniques and anti-bacterial hand gels.
  2. No sharing of fruit or water bottles.
  3. How we greet and interact with other players/opponents to minimise contact with other participants in and around the football field. This would extend to not having to shake hands before and after the match as an example.

Kind regards

Glen Brown

Club President
