The FA welcome the UK Government’s announcement and 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.
They 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.
The FA will continue our ongoing dialogue with Government to clarify the details and next steps, and provide further updates in due course.
The latest FAQs for non-elite football can be downloaded below and from our COVID-19 Guidance page.
