The FA Response to Latest UK Government Update on COVID-19 Restrictions

Please read The FA's response to the UK Government announcement on COVID-19 restrictions, which took place on 23 November 2020.

The FA welcomes the UK Government's announcement today 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 2 December.

The FA 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.

Until then, please remember that all football activity remains suspended until 2 December 2020.
