COVID-19 Update

Last update: 13th January 2021

The 2020/21 competition will resume on Friday 29th January 2021.

The NSW Government’s latest Public Health Order restricts participants to no more than 3000 at any one time. The limit of one spectator per player, which was originally in place at the start of this competition, is no longer in effect. The Movement Plan is also no longer in effect. However we do ask that there is no gathering of teams on the synthetic oval until the previous games have completed and the teams have moved off the oval. In summary the changes following the COVID-19 Safety Plan for this year’s Forest Summer Soccer as at the date indicated above are:

  • Spectators must maintain a social distance of at least 1.5 metres.
  • Adjustment of playing times and an increase in breaks between matches to allow more time for teams to exit and enter the fields to avoid congestion.
  • Players at Forest Summer Soccer MUST be registered in order to play, including all borrowed players. There are NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • Participants who have been unwell up to 2 weeks prior to any match day and showing any common symptoms of any virus including but not limited to fever, sore throat, loss of taste, difficulty breathing or any other similar symptom must not play. NSW Health advises that anyone with even the mildest of symptoms should get tested for COVID-19.
  • Anyone who has visited any of the locations detailed on the NSW Government COVID-19 pages here must follow the latest advice from NSW Health on self-isolation and testing, and not attend Summer Soccer if impacted.
