Organisers of Kingaroy Soccer Club’s big two-day Soccer 7s carnival will be watching the skies as rain continues to fall in the lead-up to the weekend.
The Evolution Solar Soccer 7s attracts hundreds of players from across south-east Queensland every year and is scheduled to begin on Saturday morning, weather permitting.
More than 40 teams have registered to take part, which means the four fields at Tom Alford Oval in Kingaroy should be busy both days.
Competitions have been organised for Men (27 teams), Women (nine teams) and Over 35s (six teams).
First games are due to begin at 10:00am on Saturday and 8:20am on Sunday.
Finals will begin at noon on Sunday, with presentations at 3:30pm.
As of Thursday night, the event was still going ahead despite the rain.
UPDATE 7:30pm Friday: Organisers say the fields have been inspected and the carnival is definitely going ahead!
