MCSA noted the recent FFA decision (1/4) to extend the suspension of grassroots football competitions and associated training until at least the 31st of May 2020. The decision is in light of the ongoing developments including stricter measures imposed by the Federal & State Governments in response to COVID-19.
MCSA understands that reducing community gatherings would help slow the spread of the virus and that this was the driving factor in the decision to extend the suspension period.
It is very regrettable that grassroots community football will not proceed for the next month (and perhaps for an extended period), but as a responsible association, we recognize that we have a role to play in slowing the spread of the virus. Accordingly, MCSA has suspended our 2020 winter season until the 9th of June when we will reassess the situation.
We will continue to communicate new MCSA developments as appropriate.
