FA PROVIDES POSITION ON GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL IN LIGHT OF COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT
We have issued a further update regarding the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on football in England.
Following the Government’s announcement today, for people to avoid social contact and gatherings where possible, we are now advising that all grassroots football in England is postponed for the foreseeable future.
We have also decided to postpone all matches across all FA competitions, including those outside of the professional game, until 3 April.
We are committed to trying to complete all competition fixtures and will be liaising with the relevant parties to establish appropriate options to do so.
Throughout this period, we have taken Government advice with the priority being the health and wellbeing of all. We will continue to work closely with the grassroots game during this time.
We are in regular communication with the Government and the situation within English football at all levels remains under regular review. Further updates will follow as needed.
With this in mind we unfortunately have taken the advice from the Government, The Football Association and the County Football Association and cancelled all our coaching activities until further notice. We will be contacting all our customers with updates in the upcoming days.
