Following the most recent statement released by both Football Federation Australia and Football Queensland informing us that all football related activities have effectively been suspended until the 30th of June 2020. As we were only made aware of these changes moments prior to the release to the general public, we were unable to prepare a statement upon release outlining Football Gold Coast’s stance.
Football Gold Coast have been continuously discussing possible scenarios regarding what the format of the 2020 season will look like and have put draft plans in place for these scenarios. We have endeavored to cover all bases during planning stages.
With the most recent announcement, the Board of Football Gold Coast and the management team will be meeting in the next few days to collate ideas to distribute to our clubs for feedback through a questionnaire which we will follow up in Zoom meetings within the next week or so.
We cannot stress the importance that we want total contribution and collaboration with our stakeholders to achieve our ultimate end goal. We will ensure that communication is always maintained throughout our organisation to move forward in a united front for 2020 and beyond.
We understand that clubs and members have a lot of questions regarding a range of topics and we will try and get timely, concise information to them all in due time. We ask that you have some patience in these trying times for all parties concerned.
Please keep an eye out in the coming days for more information regarding the above. Stay safe and we look forward to working with you on bringing football back bigger and better in 2020 and beyond.
