Covid restrictions further extended – ongoing effect on the SSFA Draw for the remainder of 2021

With the current Covid restrictions now extended for a further two weeks, i.e. until Friday 30th July, please be reminded that community sport is not permitted during this period (https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/rules/greater-sydney )

That is, matches, training and other football activities must not be undertaken. Any such activity that does take place is not sanctioned and is therefore not covered by insurance.
