You may have seen the latest announcement from the Government, which encourages us to believe that we may be able to schedule a start date for the 2020/21 season soon.

The communication from the FA states that, “We welcome the announcement and publication of the Government’s return to recreational sport framework today, which means we can look forward to the safe return of competitive grassroots football.

We have now submitted a comprehensive action plan and related guidance for Government approval as outlined in DCMS’s publication. We will confirm timings as soon as we are able to. Once approved, we will publish new guidance for the grassroots football community..

In the meantime, competitive grassroots football can prepare to return and look forward to the start of the new season.

Please continue to refer to the latest guidance documents for adult players, coaches, facility operators, parents and carers involved in restarting grassroots football activity – which came into effect from 4 July – until a further update is provided, in addition to the latest Government guidance on COVID-19.”
