The Logan Metro FC committee would like to update everyone involved with the football club on the current situation with football in Queensland after today’s statements from Football Brisbane and Football Queensland.
As you may or may not be aware there is currently a dispute with the governing body who manages all the competitions (miniroos to senior teams) LMFC teams play in- Football Brisbane and the governing body who manages all football in Queensland -Football Queensland.
- Football Queensland officially advised Football Brisbane today that of the view of Football Queensland that they (football Brisbane) are no longer members of Football Queensland.
- Football Queensland provided assurances to clubs that referees, players and clubs will continue to be covered under the National Insurance Scheme.
- Football Queensland sanctions all football across Queensland and advises that all training, games and football activities may proceed as normal and uninterrupted under the umbrella of Football Queensland.
- Football Queensland will provide advice on competition management matters shortly.
What this means for your football club (Logan Metro FC) is that Training can continue for ALL LMFC teams as all clubs are directly affiliated to Football Australia and all participants are registered to Football Australia through Football Queensland so clubs will continue to be covered under the National Insurance Scheme.
We will put out another update (specifically on games this weekend) once we get information as promised from the Football Queensland competitions team.
It’s unfortunate that issues with governing bodies has caused so much confusion in the football community and threatening to majorly disrupt football in Queensland. We hope there is a quick, clear resolution to this and that we get strong leadership with football as the number 1 priority.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact any of the committee members.
