Following the UK Government’s latest announcement regarding the introduction of local COVID alert levels, our guidance for grassroots football, which includes NLS Feeder Leagues (Step 7) and below of the Men’s Football Pyramid and Tier 7 and below of the Women’s Football Pyramid, remains the same.
It is extremely important that clubs, players, coaches, match officials, league officials, volunteers, parents, carers, and facility providers continue to strictly follow this guidance as well as the UK Governments’ latest guidance on COVID-19.
We continue to work closely with local authorities to determine our regional situation in Hampshire and, if necessary, we will issue updated information in line with respective local COVID alert levels.
We have requested clarity from the UK Government on travel into or out of areas with ‘very high’ local COVID alert levels by players in Steps 3-6 of the National League System and DCMS have confirmed, in collaboration with the FA, that player travel for these fixtures is within the guidelines.
However, we ask that spectators follow the Government guidance and do not travel into or out of ‘Very High’ Tier 3 areas.
Throughout this period, we have taken UK Government advice with our priority being the health and wellbeing of all. We will also continue to work closely with the grassroots game during this time.
