Remember to use the NHS QR codes at each venue for training and matches, keep safe and enjoy your football.

We note today’s news relating to the Essex County Council area and London Boroughs moving from Tier 1 to Tier 2 in the Government’s Covid-19 measures, which apply from Saturday 17th October.

Whether a local authority is currently in Tier 1 (Medium) or Tier 2 (High), grassroots football can continue to operate but it remains crucial to still operate in-line with the existing FA Covid-19 guidance on the return of outdoor football, which supports Government guidelines. A reminder of this information can be found in Update 33 here: www.essexfa.com/about/coronavirus.
