As we work through the options available to us we need to know which teams are going to rejoin. Obviously fees etc will be amended to reflect the games available.

5th June 2020 THE WORLD’S BIGGEST AND BEST BIENNIAL MASTERS GAMES HAVE BEEN CANCELLED The much-loved Pan Pacific Masters Games scheduled for 6 – 15 November 2020 have been cancelled. Obvioulsly, due to the impacts of the global pandemic COVID-19 on our business. To those masters who have already registered for the 2020 Pan Pacific Masters Games, we will contact you directly regarding the processing of registration fee refunds in the next few weeks. As custodians of the Pan Pacific Masters Games, the team at Events Management Queensland is passionate about delivering a world-class masters games event. Like you, we are very disappointed there will be no Pan Pacific Masters Games this year, especially after so much training and preparation has gone into it since the last edition held in November 2018. Our focus is now on the future. We have started the work already with our valued government and strategic partners, sports, sponsors and stakeholders to evaluate a November 2021 edition. We hope to be able to confirm the status of this plan in the next few months.

SPIRIT OF THE GAME
Jan24

SPIRIT OF THE GAME

SPIRIT OF THE GAME FRIENDSHIP Mateship is fundamental to our Australian culture. Everyone who plays or supports Masters Football shares a common interest—that is …..their love of the game. Camaraderie is not reserved to the individual Teams. Masters Football is about encouraging Players and Supporters to build Mateship beyond that. Get to know Players and Supporters from other Teams. They are fathers, grandfathers, sons, uncles and brothers, just like you. Players as bread winners need to leave the field uninjured…. FUN Masters Football is about having a laugh, taking the piss respectfully out of your Team Mates and those on opposing Teams (read respectfully). We are in the retirement home for footballers. Our bodies are no longer up for what we did as young men. Look after it and be mindful of others. Who knows how long we’ll have to use it? FAIRNESS Play the ball not the man and remember to leave a man’s back to himself. Vindictive sledging and over aggressive play need not be tolerated. Play the Ball, an expression we are all too familiar with as young men—it still applies as mature men. Control your anger don’t let it control you. Don’t jump to conclusions—-Collisions happen. Our steering and braking system ‘aint what it used to be. Some players are playing with replacement parts be mindful of that. Respect your elders, it’s pretty easy to see who may be an elder. Respect the Refs even if you don’t agree. Follow proper channels if you consider something needs addressing. Remember also, we do have female members and spectators…. FITNESS Get the heart pumping and the legs moving. Fitness will help us as we move into our twilight years. And importantly, remember, Grandchildren will still want their Pop to pick them up. If you want to play,  don’t stress, if you don’t have a Team or don’t know your Team Leader, please contact  john-registrar@gcmasterssoccer.com.au ———————————————————————————————————————————————– Warm and sunny Friday 24th November Hi Masters, Another year done and dusted, we trust everyone enjoyed the Season with GC Masters.
