A THRIVING GAME | A THRIVING FOOTBALL COMMUNITY
You can find all the details on our cancellation process in this post. Key points and frequently asked questions are listed below.
Each Friday we receive information from the various Councils on what ground restrictions we have on the football fields in the region. Please don’t refer to various Council websites to see if grounds are open or closed for the weekend’s fixtures, they advise us which fields can be used.
We make every effort to make any changes to draws by 6:00pm on Friday. Occasionally, further changes are made on Friday night or Saturday/Sunday mornings (as close to 7:00am as possible) if conditions change.
We will post updates here on our website. A banner across the top of the website will take you to the latest changes. We will also post to Facebook advising that changes have been posted. Please check your fixture here for changes. If it is transferred, postponed, cancelled, or defaulted, it will say it on your game.
MASS POSTPONEMENTS & CANCELLATIONS
Late (ie. game-day morning) or mass postponements/cancellations, will first be posted to the Cancellations page on our website and the Capital Football Facebook page until the fixture information can be updated. If you are unsure if your game will go ahead, check there first.
The decision on late cancellations will be made as close to 7:00am as possible on game day.
For junior games, in the event that you turn up to a game and the field is unsuitable for play (ie. it’s underwater) or the weather changes to make it unsafe for players (ie. a hail storm) please discuss with the opposition and make a decision as to whether to play on.
For in-house First Kicks or Fun Football (U7 & U8 games) please also check with your club coordinator as some clubs offer an indoor option.
