Return To Training Conditions released for Regional Victoria (excluding Greater Shepparton)

Football training can return in Regional Victoria, excluding Shepparton, following the Victorian Government’s relaxation of restrictions for those areas overnight.

In order to accommodate a return to training for those Clubs in Regional Victoria, Football Victoria (FV) has released new Return To Training Conditions (RTT) for our Regional football community.

Football Victoria is conscious that due to conditions a number of Associations/Clubs have ended the season, but for those that have elected to continue please see the following information.

The key points to note include:

  • Only training is permitted. No competition is permitted.

  • Spectators are not permitted, other than for parental supervision (1 per minor) and to support people for players with additional needs.

  • Futsal/Indoor football cannot return to training.

  • Metropolitan Melbourne and Greater Shepparton cannot undertake any training activities.

Clubs are requested to review the changes in the RTT in detail and to liaise with their Council (or other land owner) in relation to venue and facility access. Clubs who have teams participating in competitions administered by a Regional Association, should liaise directly with their member Association.

Compliance with FV’s Return to Training Conditions is mandatory.
