The FA has today (12 June) released updated guidelines for all involved in grassroots football activity, as we continue to navigate our way through the on-going coronavirus pandemic.
As part of The FA’s material released through County FAs to support the gradual return to football, a series of new guides have been published to enable individuals the opportunity to obtain all knowledge they need respective to their involvement in the game.
Compiled by The FA working closely to the advice provided by the Government, each guide provides detailed information on what can and can’t be carried out at this time, with advice for before, during and after sessions.

Across the North West we recognise the challenges that have faced grassroots football throughout this Covid-19 pandemic. Our immediate thoughts have always been with all those affected and those who have provided both front line support via the emergency services and the key workers who have worked tirelessly, many of those being actively involved in grassroots football.
Across the North West we are all aware that the return of grassroots football will be complex with both phased and conditional transitions likely throughout the 2020/21 season. That first phase has now allowed small groups of up to six persons, including your coach to meet and take part in sessions that abide by the Governments advice and guidance.
All our County FA Memberships/Affiliation processes will be open from Monday 15th June enabling all our Clubs to recommence their administration. However, let’s present a clear and collective message from all of the County FAs in the North West; there is no return date or likely return date known for grassroots football. We do understand the eagerness to get back to football, but would ask that you follow the guidance offered by The FA and most importantly the Government guidance.
We thank you all for your patience during what is and will continue to be a challenging time for everyone.
