All CWFL Fixtures Suspended

Sunday 15thMarch 2020

 

CWFL Statement re Coronavirus & Football

CWFL is suspending all competitions until further notice.

After further assessment of the ongoing Coronavirus situation the CWFL have decided that all our Open Age, Vets and Flexi competitions will be suspended immediately until further notice.

We have come to this decision after evaluating yesterday’s games and witnessing things that we, in all good conscience, cannot control such as close contact of opponents, use of communal changing rooms, mixing with people unknown to each other and the sharing of water bottles to name but a few. It is felt that this is potentially compromising the health and well being of not only the players and officials for each game but also their families and loved ones.

We are also mindful of the fact that many of our games take place at venues such as High Schools, Leisure Centre’s and other places where we have no control as to the comings and goings of other users, putting them and our players and officials at unnecessary risk.

As much as we would not wish to come to this decision we feel that it is the correct call to make at this moment in time. We know that some will be upset by this suspension but we feel we owe a Social Responsibility to all our CWFL participants and the communities our games are played in. Everyone’s health and wellbeing must come first before the fixtures.

We will continue to review this situation and work on contingencies once we get back up and running. You will all be informed as to the status of our discussions.

On behalf of the CWFL we wish you all the very best during these difficult times. Please look after yourselves and your families and loved ones.

Best Regards

CWFL Committee
