Football & Futsal suspended following statewide extended lockdown

With the State Government’s announcement that Victoria will enter a further lockdown, Football Victoria (FV) confirms that all Football/ Futsal activities in Victoria will be further suspended until 11.59pm Tuesday, July 27.

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

The FV Competitions team is considering all options to attempt to reschedule these fixtures and an update will be communicated following an announcement of a return to football.

Please visit our COVID-19 FAQs for further details.

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.
