Unfortunately with all this rain, we have had to close our fields for today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday). This means that all MiniRoos scheduled for our grounds are cancelled. A decision on the fields for Sunday will be made on Saturday morning.
Outstanding fixtures in the FQPL 2 Women’s and FQPL 3-6 Men’s competitions will move to remaining catch up rounds and a small number of games will be scheduled for mid-week. If more fixtures are lost due to poor weather, extending the season by two weeks will be implemented (factoring in play-off matches for promotion into the FQPL 2)
No rounds will be recorded as 0-0 draws
Finals Series will remain across all competitions as per feedback provided by clubs
Community Senior competitions have been extended by two weeks and the Finals Series will be played during the September school holidays
Community Junior competitions have been extended by two weeks and the Finals Series will be played after the September school holidays
Due to the closeness in number of responses regarding MiniRoos playing after the September school holidays, the decision has been made to add two rounds to the first and last weekends of the school holidays. FQ understands that there are teams who will not be able to participate, however will work with clubs to ensure that participating teams do not miss out (which may involve opposition teams lending players to allow these children to play)
Most clubs have acknowledged that mid-week catch up fixtures may be necessary in order to deliver the season as best as possible for all participants
Extending the season marginally by two weeks will mean that there will be less impact on player loading from playing continuous fixtures. Training will also be less impacted with less mid-week catch up rounds, easing the pressure on clubs to juggle both training sessions and games
Enjoy what’s left of this weekend and your remaining games and may the sun keep shining.
Please note that our fields continue to be closed due to the water on the field and no sun to dry them out.
An email has just been sent to members advising of training at Brisbane West Indoor Centre (Inflatable World) for this upcoming week. It will be from 5 – 6pm and players need to wear indoor boots or sneakers.
Monday – Puddles, U6, U7 and U8 teams that can make it
Tuesday – U9, U10, U11 and U12 Kangaroo teams
Wednesday – U12 Girls, U13 Girls and Boys, U12 Tempest team
Due to the fields not recovering enough to get game-ready and the weather forecast; unfortunately, we must keep the pitches closed to all games.
Please note that Football Queensland has left it up to individual clubs to call off or keep fixtures going depending on their individual pitch conditions. So, if you have a game played away, please keep an eye on the Metro Wet Weather – Football Queensland page to see if the match is still going ahead.
