UPDATE: Season suspended due to new COVID lockdown measures

The Football Association has provided an update for ‘non-elite’ football in England following the UK Government’s announcement on new national Covid-19 restrictions that will be in place from Thursday 5th November 2020 until Wednesday 2nd December 2020.

As a result of the UK Government’s new national Covid-19 restrictions, and subject to Members of Parliament voting tomorrow [Wednesday 4th November 2020] and the publication of bespoke guidance from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport [DCMS], the impact on ‘non elite’ football in England will include the suspension of the following during this period:

  • All fixtures and training for Steps 3-6 of the National League System [NLS];
  • All fixtures and training for Tiers 3-7 of the Women’s Football Pyramid [WFP];
  • All fixtures and training for the Regional NLS Feeder Leagues;
  • All fixtures and training for The Barclays FA WSL Academy League;
  • All fixtures and training for FA Girls Regional Talent Clubs;
  • All fixtures and training for indoor and outdoor youth and adult grassroots football.

The FA’s aim is to ensure that the 2020/21 season is completed at these levels and will liaise with the relevant leagues in the NLS and WFP and the County Football Associations [CFAs] to provide support and establish appropriate options to do so if required.
