Following the confirmation from the Prime Minister earlier today that Auckland will remain at Covid-19 Alert Level 2.5 until further review on Monday 21 September, we can now confirm the remainder of the NRF winter football and futsal season is cancelled for all levels of competition in the Auckland region.
Should the current Covid-19 Alert Level be further revised in the future and gathering sizes altered to allow matches to progress, clubs will be able to schedule friendlies should they wish to do so. Please work with your respective Auckland Council Area Operations staff to confirm field availability. If clubs would like referees appointed to any friendly matches, please contact Appointments@nff.org.nz to lodge a request.
While we are all disappointed at the situation we are faced with, public safety remains the key principle driving our decision-making process around the season.
NRF would like to thank everyone in the community for your outstanding contribution and dedication as we worked together to try and deliver some form of football and futsal in what have been exceptionally trying circumstances.
