Football West COVID-19 Support Page

Update: 5 February 2021

Football West is pleased to announce the resumption of community football activities under post-lockdown transitional measures for the Perth metropolitan area and Peel, as well as a return to pre-lockdown conditions for the South West region.

These conditions will come into effect from 6:01pm, Friday 5 February until 12:01am, Sunday 14 February, pending no further local cases.

Following the phased relaxation of restrictions announced by the WA State Government, Football West advises that Clubs and Associations who are in the position to do so, can recommence community football activities as permissible within their region from 6:01pm, Friday 5 February.

Clubs and associations should ensure they have permission to play football from their landowner or Local Government Authority.

For Clubs and Associations in the Perth metropolitan and Peel regions, pertinent measures will include:

  • Wearing a mask when in public and while at work, unless exempt or for vigorous outdoor exercise and children under 12 years

  • 4 square metre capacity rule in place for businesses and venues, up to a maximum of 150

  • 150-person capacity at all community sports events

As this is a constantly developing situation, it is advised to stay up-to-date via official WA Government channels through the COVID-19 Information Page and the Healthy WA website.

We will continue to provide updates as they are provided from the WA State Government.
