COVID-19: Move to Alert Level 4, August 18th

COVID 19 UPDATE

By now you will be aware that all of New Zealand has moved to Alert Level 4, as at 23:59 17/08/21. As such the following restriction is now in place:

  • All football-related activities, including team trainings are unable to go ahead at Alert Level 4.
  • You can train at home or outdoor places, but only with those in your immediate bubble.

Accordingly Capital Football has announced:

  • All JUNIOR (Grades U7 – U12) has been cancelled this weekend (this includes both Mixed and GOSL grades)
  • All YOUTH (Grades U13 – U14/15) has been postponed this weekend (this includes both Mixed and GOSL grades)

Capital Football will make a decision on postponed Youth games at a later date – this will be dependent on grounds availability.

Furthermore and in line with Capital Football’s decisions above, OJFC First Kicks is also cancelled this weekend.

These decisions have been made with the best interests of the football community at heart and to provide certainty for all this weekend.
