Following Government announcements on the easing of social distancing restrictions on Tuesday 23 June, the FA 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.
The FA will continue to keep us all updated as these discussions progress and provide amended guidance as and when they can.
In the meantime, please do continue to refer to the below 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.
To support the gradual return to football these guides have been published to enable individuals the opportunity to obtain all knowledge they need respective to their involvement in the game.
Compiled by The FA working closely to the advice provided by the Government, each guide provides detailed information on what can and can’t be carried out at this time, with advice for before, during and after sessions.
Please click on the respective links below to view each individual guide.
“It’s really not about getting back to football training as soon as possible. It’s about getting back as safely as possible. That can only be done with full and proper risk assessments.”
