Football Queensland has today confirmed the further postponement of all junior and senior fixtures in South East Queensland (SEQ) and Wide Bay due to the ongoing impact of wet weather and flooding in the regions.
The postponement includes all fixtures and carnivals scheduled to be played in SEQ and Wide Bay between 28 February and 6 March. The postponement will provide more time and opportunity for Football Queensland to assess damage to clubs, lights, fields and changerooms that may further impact the season ahead, and to determine if additional postponements are required in the coming days.
The safety of our participants and volunteers remains paramount, therefore the postponement includes all fixtures scheduled to occur across the following Football Queensland regions: Metro North and South, South Coast, Sunshine Coast, Darling Downs, and Wide Bay.
Clubs impacted by rain and flooding, in time, may qualify for the Queensland Government Sport and Recreation Disaster Recovery Program (SRDRP) for council areas that are declared to have been impacted. Football Queensland will continue to monitor any applicable funding or grants that become available and will notify clubs.
Football Queensland will be in contact directly with all affected clubs regarding the rescheduling of fixtures and will continue to keep all clubs and participants across the state updated on any further changes.
