Change of venue for football grand finals

Change of venue for football grand finals

By Carl Portella

FNQ Football has been forced into the decision to move tonight’s fillies, 3rd division and 2nd division games to Mareeba due the current weather conditions.

All fields at Endeavour Park are currently water logged and there are issues with the marking and mowing the fields for tonight’s fixtures.

Mareeba is the only venue where it has not rained yet where they can mow and mark the fields, they have the canteen and bar and staff available to host the fixtures, also have two fields under lights to be able to host all three games at one venue.

We have altered game times to help with the travel; please we ask you to understand this is not decision that has been made lightly, we have to consider tomorrow night’s fixtures as well and the safety of players tonight and also for tomorrow night.

Game times are as below;
FIELD 1 – kick off at 6.30pm – FILLIES – JCU V MCR
FIELD 1 – kick off at 8.30pm – 2nd DIV Men’s – Douglas V Atherton
FIELD 2 – Kick off at 7.30pm – 3rd DIV Men’s – Leichhardt V Stratford

Everything else remains the same:
$8 entry
Children 16 Under FREE

Please spread the word, and we ask players, coaches and spectators to understand.

At this stage only the Friday Night Grand Finals (tonight) have been changed.
