With the State Government announcement that Victoria will enter a seven day lockdown, Football Victoria (FV) confirms that all Football/Futsal activities from 11.59pm Thursday May 27 until 11.59pm Thursday, June 3 will be postponed.

This includes all organised competitions, practice matches & training sessions, refereeing training sessions, in-person referee & coaching courses, Futsal competitions and training, Talent ID and FV elite development programs.

Further information on the rescheduling of these fixtures will be communicated.

At this stage, we anticipate that competitions will resume as scheduled next weekend. We encourage all Clubs to stay connected with parents and players to prepare them for the resumption of football.

Football Victoria will continue to liaise with the Department of Sport and Recreation and will provide updates as they are available.

Please stay safe and we look forward to football resuming following this lockdown.
