Update - Grassroots Football
The FA release statement on the return of grassroots sport
23rd November 2020
Following the Government's announcement that the national lockdown will be lifted on 2nd December, we have received the following statement from The FA regarding the impact on grassroots amateur football:
"We welcome the UK Government’s announcement today and we are very pleased that organised sports, which include Steps 3-6 of the National League System [NLS], Tiers 3-6 of the Women’s Football Pyramid [WFP] and competitive grassroots football, can look forward to resuming from 2nd December.
We are also delighted to see the beginning of the safe return of fans in stadiums for elite sports events and confirmation that spectators at non-elite sports will be able to attend events in line with Covid-secure guidance for each tier.
We will continue our ongoing dialogue with Government to clarify the details and next steps, and provide further updates in due course."
The club will now communicate with our respective partner leagues and training venues and will update you on the return to football as soon as possible.
