ALL FIELDS OPEN
Wet weather closures
At Moggill FC we want to play football whatever the conditions are. Some of us actually relish playing in wet conditions,
but the nature of the Australian climate means we have to be careful not to cause long term damage to the turf. If the
ground is sufficiently saturated, we will normally choose not to allow play (or training) in the interests of maintaining
turf quality for the whole season.
This page is intended to be the single source of truth regarding Field Status. If you have any doubts about the fields being
open, come to this page first. MFC makes this call by relying on a small (one or two) number of volunteers who come to the
fields and make a decision in the interest of the club. If you're interested in being part of this cohort please let us know.
What about away games?
In general, the hosting club for a fixture is meant to call off games at least 3 hours prior to kick off. Once Football Brisbane are informed
they will let the visiting club know. We will generally message your team via your coach and/or manager. Football Brisbane
hosts a page that
identifies all field closures. If the hosting club does not postpone the game, the Match Officials still have the
final say on whether (excuse the pun!) the fields are playable, but their call is going to be based on player safety rather
than protecting the turf.
