Mariners Academy: Changes made to matches this weekend

Following the decision yesterday by Central Coast Football to close Pluim Park this weekend to teams from outside the Central Coast LGA in line with NSW Health Covid-19 advice, the Central Coast Mariners will seek alternative venues for this weekend’s Academy matches.

The Club acknowledges that Pluim Park is a community venue primarily used for and by community sport, and that the decision by CCF to close the venue to non-Central Coast participants for the next six weeks is made with the best interests of the community in mind.

As a result, the Club worked with Football NSW and our opponents to organise matches at privately owned and run facilities, and changes to fixtures are now listed below.

The Central Coast Mariners continue to work closely with NSW Health and NSW Office of Sport to ensure that football is operating in accordance with NSW Government Public health orders and recommendations.

We take this opportunity to remind all of our supporters of key protocols;

  • Only one parent is to accompany players aged 18 and under to junior youth football
  • Senior players are encouraged to limit the number of partners and spectators that attend football matches
  • Players and spectators must comply with the 1.5m social distancing rule
  • Do not attend football matches if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms or are unwell

The club advises against spectators attending Sunday’s matches at the Centre of Excellence, with the game instead available to watch live and free on NPL.tv.
