As part of the continued fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, it is vital that the football community in London takes the threat seriously and follow the regulations.
The most up to date information can be found on the London FA website.
London FA takes breaches of the guidance seriously and have now put steps in place to report incidents.
After reviewing the guidance, if you feel a breach has occurred, you are now able to Report It to the London FA.
If the reported incident is deemed a breach, the club will be informed. If there are continued breaches by a specific team, there is possibility of their fixtures being withdrawn.
Every participant must follow all FA and Government advice, this is crucial to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the game, and so we can continue to play.
We thank everyone who has put steps in place to ensure a safe environment for football across London.
These are uncertain times – and London FA is very mindful of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic and the effect it is having on all of us. Although we are seeing the rate of infection nationally going down, this is not the case in London and there is real risk of a significant rise over the coming weeks.
We’re desperate to ensure that grassroots football continues – and we genuinely believe that it can… with you help and vigilance.
We have all been inspired by the amazing work that has been carried out by our clubs and leagues in response to the measures put in place, making sure that grassroots football is played in as safe an environment as possible.
We’re urging everybody; staff, players, and volunteers, to continue to follow the Code of Conduct as set out on our website. Please be mindful of your actions away from football, as they also have an impact on whether grassroots football can continue to be played.
If we all work together, grassroots football can remain healthy and provide much-needed relief from the on-going challenges we face day-to-day. London FA is here to provide everyone with the latest advice, the best guidance, and the tools to be able to follow the Code and keep grassroots football safe for all of us.
It’s possible that the Government and The FA may have to take further action. But until then, we can all play our part – let’s keep football going in London.
As always, thank you again for your continued tireless efforts and support.
