It's raining! Are the games on?

What do I do? Who do I contact?

Please note: Rain does not automatically mean games are off.
It is the state of the ground that determines whether matches proceed.

Referees have final say on the closure of a ground after a visual inspection prior to a match. They may also call off a match if conditions deteriorate during a fixture.

What to do: For Parents/Players

1) If games are OFF then check the Football Midnorth Coast website where it will be updated accordingly, advising the details.

Only fields that are CLOSED will be mentioned on the website
