An update for permitted grassroots football activity during COVID-19 from 25 June

Thursday 25 Jun 2020
The latest update regarding a return for grassroots football was made on 25 June

Following Government announcements on the easing of social distancing restrictions on Tuesday 23 June, we are in active discussions with other team sports, Sport England and the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport about how we can secure a safe return to competitive grassroots football as soon as is reasonably possible.

We will continue to keep you updated as these discussions progress and provide amended guidance as and when we can.

In the meantime, please do continue to refer to the guidance documents for adult players, coaches, facility operators, parents and carers involved in re-starting grassroots football activity issued on 12 June until a further update is provided.

Thank you for playing your vital part in helping our great game get going again and let’s continue to work together to ensure football’s return is as smooth and safe as possible.

Please visit our dedicated web portal on The FA website to access COVID-19 information and updates.
