Game Day cancellations and transfers

If it's raining your game(s) may be cancelled or transferred. The Club can cancel First Kicks due to bad weather. All other age grades and Girls Only Sunday Football cancellations are determined by the Wellington City Council. If the WCC decides to close the grounds, no one can play. If they decide not the close the grounds, games are usually on. And remember, just because some grounds are closed it doesn't necessarily mean all of them are - so you need to check!

First Kicks
First Kicks at Dave Farrington Park is cancelled at the discretion of the Club and parents will be notified at the earliest opportunity by email and a note will be posted on Facebook and the website.

7th and 8th Grade Fun Football
Fun Football is usually on unless the WCC closes the grounds. In this instance, Grade Managers will notify parents by email and a note will be posted on Facebook and the website.

All other Age Grades + Girls Only Sunday League
Football is usually on unless the WCC closes the grounds. The best place to find out if games are cancelled or transferred is via Capital Football's Fixtures page. Navigate to your fixture and it will clearly show if it's been altered. Usually Capital Football will try and finalise cancellations and transfers by Friday afternoon - but it's always a good idea to check again on Saturday morning in case things have changed overnight.

Some things to remember...

  • The WCC owns the grounds and makes the decision to close them - not Capital Football, not the Club, not your Grade Manager and not your coach.
  • Just because some grades are cancelled, it doesn't mean all of them are.
  • If you can't find a cancellation on Capital Football's Fixtures page, on MRFC's Facebook page, on the MRFC website or in your email inbox - you are ON!
  • If you arrive at a game and the conditions make playing dangerous, both coaches can agree to cancel on the spot.
