Football on pitch

Updated guidance for football participants and supporters

17th December 2021

Today The FA is updating its Covid-19 guidance to reflect the Government’s move to Plan B of its Covid Autumn/Winter Plan, in response to the risks of the Omicron variant.

Please note that there is no material impact on the playing of grassroots football currently and we want to thank you in advance for playing a vital role in helping our great game to stay safe.

By observing Government guidance and the football-specific protocols, let’s work together to ensure we can all continue to enjoy football while keeping as safe as possible.

The FA continues to work closely with Government to monitor the ongoing impact of Covid-19 and will update guidance documents with any further changes, as and when necessary.

All updated guidance documents can be downloaded below.
