Please see following released by Football NSW today after the prediction of high temperatures over this weekend, particularly on Sunday: 

Dear Associations, 


With forecast temperatures for this coming weekend across the Sydney and the Western areas expected to reach the 40° mark, we would like to remind clubs of the FNSW Hot Weather Policy.


CHILDREN - 32° (activity should be cancelled when ambient air temperature reaches 32°)

ADULTS - 37° (activity should be cancelled when ambient air temperature reaches 37°)

Cancellation may be necessary at lower temperatures, particularly where a higher level of humidity is present. Refer to the Heat Stress Indexfor risk levels.

Associations and Community Clubs are reminded of their duty of care and that in extreme temperatures the safety and welfare of players must be a priority.

Exposure to extreme heat can be dangerous to the health of adults and pose an ever-greater risk to the health of children and young people.


Where temperatures occur within the following ranges and a club has assessed and deemed a football activity to be safe to continue, consideration must be given to modifying the activity and increasing rest and drink breaks in shaded areas.

Children - 26° to 31° ambient temperature (at 32° activity should be cancelled – refer above)

Adults - 26° to 36° ambient temperature (at 37° activity should be cancelled – refer above)

Within these temperature ranges, participation must also be closely monitored and the safety and welfare of players MUST BE A PRIORITY.

Football NSW has already cancelled the SAP Gala Day which was due to take place at VSP this weekend and we encourage you all to take a similarly pro-active approach to your weekend fixtures if appropriate.

Please refer to the FNSW Hot Weather Policy. For further information, please refer to the SMA Hot Weather Guidelines and Sports Medicine Australia website.
