Football back in business

Created on 02/11/2020 @ 17:32


Grass roots clubs can resume their preparations for the delayed football season after the Welsh Government-enforced second lockdown ends next week, local officials have confirmed.

Following the announcement by First Minister, Mark Drakeford, today that restrictions will be eased next Monday, the Central Wales Football Association told clubs to prepare for action.

It means that clubs can start playing friendlies in readiness for the season to begin across all levels of football in the following weeks, just in time for the flood season!

“Following the Welsh Government’s announcement this lunchtime, the FAW have announced that football activity will resume at Phase 3 from next week,” said a CWFA spokesperson.

“This will mean that friendly matches can resume for all levels of football from November 9. 

“The removal of local lockdowns will ensure that no restrictions will be placed on players of any age participating in training or matches. Volunteers facilitating football opportunities will also be able to travel to support football activity.”

One restriction remains that only 30 people in total can participate in any organised outdoor activity, meaning there will be a limit on substitutions and also a ban on spectators.
