We welcome the UK Government’s update today regarding the Covid-19 roadmap for easing lockdown restrictions which means we can look forward to the safe return of grassroots football from 29 March for both adults and children. 

With this new clarity around timings, we will continue to work with the FA and local leagues with plans for a safe return for grassroots football and will communicate updated guidance as soon as we can.

We can also confirm that the 2020-21 grassroots season has been extended until the end of June in order to provide additional flexibility and time for leagues to complete their fixtures this season if they wish to do so. All our sites will remain open with goal posts available to coincide with the extended season.
