We bring you the very latest news from The FA and the SW Premier League as we welcome the UK Government’s announcement that competitive grassroots football can look forward to resuming from 2nd December.
We welcome the UK Government’s announcement today and we 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 2nd December.
We 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.
We will continue our ongoing dialogue with Government to clarify the details and next steps, and provide further updates in due course.
We are very pleased that organised sports, which include steps three-to-six of the National League System, tiers three-to-six of the Women’s Football Pyramid and competitive grassroots football, can look forward to resuming from 2 December.— The FA (@FA) November 23, 2020
Great to see enthusiasm for restart and news from Govt & FA— SOUTH WEST PENINSULA FOOTBALL LEAGUE (@swpleague) November 23, 2020
BUT we have to wait until Thursday to see what Tiers we are in, if tiers 2 or 3 serious issues about clubhouses, Tier 3 further issues about travel
Covid has not gone away, we may still lose games as clubs have cases
The league have been consulting with clubs about restart date and conditions of such, as well as how best to catch up on games. (currently 88 behind last year)— SOUTH WEST PENINSULA FOOTBALL LEAGUE (@swpleague) November 23, 2020
