Guidance for clubs and outdoor football providers

The League received guidance in July from The FA concerning the return of competitive football.

This guidance included advice on the commencement of competitive training, the playing of pre-season games and the likely start dates for league programmes. League officials reviewed the information provided and set a start date for all Divisions.

The review of the requirements for clubs has proved they are extremely onerous. If any club needs support in the completion of their risk assessment, then please contact the League.

For now, clubs need to advise the name of their Covid-19 Officer (for communication purposes) to the League and to confirm the completion of their risk assessment. This will support the playing of football in safe conditions and also support Track & Trace should any infections be identified.
