Some of the state’s best young footballers will travel to Football Queensland (FQ) headquarters at Meakin Park to compete in this weekend’s Under 12 SAP Boys State Carnival on Saturday, 5 September and Sunday, 6 September.
The two-day event will welcome teams from North Queensland, Central Queensland, Wide Bay, South West and South East Queensland, with two sessions to be held on each day to limit the number of players and spectators on-site at one time as part of a number of COVID Safe measures implemented by FQ.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming some of Queensland’s most talented young players for this weekend’s SAP Boys State Carnival at Meakin Park,” State Technical Director Gabor Ganczer said.
“30 Under 12 teams from across South East Queensland, South West, Wide Bay, Central Queensland and North Queensland will compete this weekend as they come up against opponents from around the state.
“The SAP Boys State Carnival will also act as a talent identification opportunity for the young players, with Brisbane Roar Academy coaches and Football Queensland Talent Support Program coaches in attendance to watch games across the two days.
“We have made the decision to split the draw into two sessions on each day, a morning and an afternoon session with a 45 minute break in between, to limit the number of people at the venue at one time.
“We will also have a number of other COVID Safe measures in place to ensure the health and safety of all participants and attendees, including temperature checks for those in attendance, regular cleaning of facilities and equipment like match balls, QR code attendance tracking measures and social distancing requirements.
“I look forward to seeing the talent on show this weekend, and I wish all players, coaches and referees the best of luck for the carnival.”
