Latest ESFA Statement regarding the return of Schools’ Football

The ESFA has reviewed The FA guidance with regard to the resumption of football, and you can find it here.

The guidance exempts those aged under 18 from the restrictions, so subject to risk assessment and compliance with FA regulations, football can continue. However, please bear in mind that, even with the exemption, there is still an expectation from government that travel is minimised.

On the basis of the latter, the ESFA’s Emergency Committee has determined that  there will be no ESFA-hosted events such as international trials or national finals before January 2021, at which point a we will review the guidance again.  In the meantime, ESFA National Cup fixtures for 20-21 and any local football is permitted to take place, subject to compliance with The FA’s regulations. Should you decide to proceed, please take extra care to ensure that your risk assessment is thorough and your compliance with regulations clear, as failure to do so exposes you and your players to risk
