Football Brisbane is pleased to release the 2021 Season Calendar, as attached. Based on all of the feedback that has been provided by clubs, the finalised version has been created on majority information that has been sent to us.
U14-U16 BYPL and Division 1
Please note that a general consensus has not been reached regarding the season for these age groups. Because these are 12 team competitions, there are 2 options provided to you on the season calendar and are highlighted in gold for ease of reference. One option is to commence the season on February 19 and run through the course of 2021. The other option is to commence the season on March 5 with two (2) midweek rounds throughout 2021. Could ALL clubs participating in these particular competitions please respond to me by 5pm, January 5, 2021 to advise which option is more suitable to your club. The final decision will be based on the majority reply.
FFA Cup dates are subject to confirmation from Football Queensland and to allow for wet weather, a gap between rounds has been created. If FQ choose to proceed without the gap week, Round 2 of the FFA Cup will commence on the weekend of February 19.
At this stage the City League Cup will be played as midweek fixtures and more details around this will be released in 2021.
We are yet to set finalised the dates for the knockout stages of the Canale Cup and Elaine Watson Cup which we’ll advise in due course.
The North-South Gala received overwhelming support and the team and I will create the scaffolding for this early in 2021, so that clubs are aware of the process. The date for the gala day will be the weekend of October 1, to allow players who will be participating in Community Cup to do so without disruption.
