COVID-19 guidance and FAQs

COVID-19 Guidance

The FA has updated the Return to Football guidance following the UK Government reaching Step 4 of the 'Roadmap out of national lockdown'.

We have now entered Step 4 of the UK Government's 'Roadmap out of national lockdown.' Step 4 of the roadmap - which is effective from the 19 July - sees almost all legal restrictions of social contact removed. However, the Government is encouraging people to act with caution. The FA guidance has therefore been updated to reflect this. You can find and download this below.

The updated guidance covers Steps 3-6 of the National League System (NLS), Tiers 3-6 of the Women’s Football Pyramid and grassroots football (including Regional NLS Feeder Leagues) - this applies to all youth and adult football and futsal, including all formats of the game, both indoors and outdoors.

The FA and Gloucestershire FA would like to thank the football community once again for its hard work, resilience and understanding during such an incredibly challenging period for both the game and wider society.
