Playing fees reduced in NSW

-

In response to calls from the football community, the Board of Football NSW has announced a number of changes to the capitation fees placed on player registration.

‘Cost of football’ was one of several concerns raised by membership after Football NSW’s Review and subsequent metropolitan and country member forums.

These welcome changes are to be introduced in the 2012 football season and should make football a more affordable sport for families with young children, and students.

In a first for football, a 12 month Accident Support Policy will be introduced where by footballers; registered though My Football Club, who engage in Futsal and Summer Football are covered with no increase to the current cost passed on for the Accident Support Policy in place.

Student rates are to be reinstated, with student players over the age of 18 to be given a 19% discount on the current Football NSW capitation fees.

Junior capitation fees (relevant to footballers aged between 6-9) have also been reduced on last season’s Football NSW capitation fees.

Moreover, capitation fees relevant to 10-17 year old juniors and seniors have remained equivalent to last year’s figures – with Football NSW absorbing the standard increases associated with cost of living.

All capitation fees include Football Federations Australia’s (FFA) MyFootballClub roll out – which enables participants to register for their local club online via the MyFootballClub website.

Football NSW CEO Eddie Moore was elated by the outcome and was full of praise for the Board in following through with a key commitment made to the Football NSW membership during the review process.

“As part of the review process the cost of football was a primary concern which the Football NSW Board and membership agreed needed to be addressed.

“These changes to the Football NSW capitation fee demonstrate our commitment as the governing body of football in NSW to keep the game cost competitive,” said Eddie.
