Following recent Government updates to the Covid-19 guidance, The FA have updated guidance documents for adult players, coaches, facility operators including clubs, parents and carers involved in re-starting grassroots football activity from the 4th July. These are available for download below, along with some practical tips for coaches working with individuals, pairs, and in threes.
These guidelines have been produced in line with the recent Government updates to the Covid-19 guidance. Specifically, these documents have been updated to reflect changes to social distancing guidelines which will come into effect from the 4th July and the introduction of support bubbles which came into effect on the 10th June. The Government guidance for the phased return of outdoor sport and recreation can be found here.
The FA continue to be 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 keep you updated as these discussions progress and provide amended guidance as and when we can.
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.
