CVOs, MPIOs and Club Jackets

CVOs required for U12 to U18 & senior teams

Due to Capital Football Competition Regulations, U12 teams and above need to provide a Club Vested Official (CVO) at each match, home and away.

What is a Club Vested Official?

A CVO represents the club and is responsible for the actions of supporters from their club.

Essentially, they get to wear a cool vest, help ensure spectators behave themselves and foster respect.

Who can be a CVO?

  • A parent or another responsible spectator/supporter
  • Someone at least 18 years old
  • You can’t be a coach, manager, reserve player or assistant referee (linesperson) at the same time
  • Different people throughout the season

What if no CVO is provided by your team for a match?

The club is fined $50 for each offence. Capital Football is actively checking match teamsheets to ensure that there is a CVO for each team. So, please write the name of the CVO on the teamsheet, under “Club Ground Officials”.

If you want to help your team with CVO requirementslet your team manager or coach know. Email us via if you need help, advice or support on being a CVO.


What is an MPIO?

MPIO stands for Member Protection Information Officer, and they provide information to members about their rights, responsibilities and options when making a complaint in sport. MPIOs are impartial and don’t mediate or investigate complaints.

Who are our MPIOs?

Belnorth FC has 2 MPIOs, Georgina and Wayne. We encourage members to contact them if they have concerns or complaints. Both their details are below.
