The long wait is almost over and the great news is we are stepping up preparations for our football family to be reunited.
Moreton Bay United board members have been in continual discussions with Football Queensland (FQ) and other clubs during the lockdown. We have been represented at Zoom meetings, receiving updates, giving feedback and commenting on proposals for our sport to restart.
It has been a long, involved process, which is continually changing – as we have seen in today’s announcements. With that in mind, Moreton Bay United will now start adjusting the training schedules and plans to meet with coaches this week regarding a return to training. Our priority now is to prepare our grounds for players, coaches and spectators with all the necessary precautions in place.
This is likely to include instructions on when and where to enter and exit the grounds, guidelines on social spacing and extra sanitisation stations, which the club has bought. We will send all this essential information out to players, families and coaches in the coming days.
We know some may find it challenging, but these are directives from the authorities and we ask that everyone helps us ensure the guidelines are followed until we are told otherwise. Dates and details on a return to competitive matches will follow and of course these will be passed on to you as soon as we can.
Throughout the lockdown our fields at Wolter Park and Brendale have been maintained and are looking in great condition. New floodlights, which we believe will be a significant upgrade, are also being installed at Wolter Park – we will have more details on that tomorrow.
This is still a fluid situation but if you have questions please ask and we will answer them, or try to get answers, as soon as we can. Many thanks for your support and understanding.
