New guidance documents for re-starting football activity during Covid-19
The FA have today issued new guidance documents for adult players, coaches, facility operators, parents and carers involved in re-starting grassroots football activity during Covid-19.
These documents have been produced in line with Government guidance issued on Monday 1 June, which saw the easing of lockdown restrictions on gatherings, public spaces and outdoor activities and the phased return of outdoor sport and recreation.
"The return of grassroots football is something that we know many are keen to see, but at this stage of the nation’s response to Covid-19, it must be done with careful consideration for everyone’s safety, especially vulnerable groups.
We continue to work closely with DCMS and Sport England in order to set out good practice guidance for those responsible for delivering different aspects of grassroots football. As the weeks progress, Government restrictions may or may not be eased further. If they are, we will update our guidance accordingly. It’s essential everyone is clear about the restrictions and works together to manage social distancing and strong hand hygiene.
We want to thank you all in advance for playing your vital part in helping our great game get going again. By observing Government guidance and these documents, let’s work together to ensure the transition back to enjoying football is as smooth and safe as possible.
Please note that guidance is being developed for clubs with teams competing in the National League System (NLS) and will be shared with clubs directly in due course. NLS clubs with grassroots teams should be able to use the guidance provided today."
