Wednesday 25 March
As you may be aware, Touch Football Australia (TFA) along with Queensland Touch Football (QTF) and NSW Touch Football (NSWTA) have taken the decision to implement a suspension of all community Touch Football competitions until Monday 4th May 2020, effective as of Tuesday 24th March.
Our focus as the state body of Touch Football here in Queensland is to ensure our players, referees, volunteers and staff remain healthy. All Touch Football activities will be suspended until Monday 4th May 2020 and we will continue to monitor the situation.
We understand this may be disappointing for our Queensland Touch Football community; however, it is imperative we all play our role in assisting to slow the spread of COVID-19.
Like many of you, our organisation is entering unprecedented and challenging times. I can assure you the QTF Board and staff members are working tirelessly to ensure the viability of Touch Football here in Queensland, so we are in a position to bounce back quickly once activities can resume.
We can confirm the current status of the following events:
State of Origin
This event has been postponed indefinitely due to the impact of COVID-19. Both QTF and the NSWTA are committed to the continuation of the State of Origin in the future and we will be closely monitoring the current COVID-19 situation and working hard with the venue operators to find an appropriate date.
Junior State Cup
We will be delaying team and individual nominations at this point in time; however, we will continue to review throughout April both the nomination and event dates and will provide you with further information when it comes to hand.
Please note we are continually reviewing upcoming state events and will provide the Touch community with regular updates when they become available.
Our primary focus during these stressful and challenging times is to look after our people so they can take care of themselves and their families. Over the coming weeks, please look out for each other, stay safe and healthy and please stay in touch.
