The FA Issue New Covid Guidance
On Monday 19th July, as part of the next step of the Government’s roadmap out of national lockdown,
there will be further changes to the restrictions on football.
Here are the key points, all set out in detail on subsequent pages:
1. On-field adaptions for playing football are no longer required.
2. No limits of how many people can meet.
3. One-metre-plus rule is removed.
4. The definition of close contact remains the same, however the rules on self-isolation will be
changing from the 16th August for those fully vaccinated.
5. Face coverings no longer required by law, but recommended in crowded indoor settings and may be
mandated by some organisations.
6. Changing rooms can be used, however clubs should manage this to minimise use where possible to
avoid participants being in a crowded area for a prolonged time thus triggering a close contact.
7. No capacity limits for spectators, but good practice encouraged.
8. Hospitality is permitted without restrictions.
9. Use of Test and Trace and QR codes are no longer mandated, but clubs can continue to do this, if they wish.
10. Free NHS lateral flow testing is available to clubs and The FA encourage clubs to take this up.
11. No domestic travel restrictions. Participants should continue to follow Government advice on
international travel for any fixtures/ tournaments.
This guidance document applies to National League System football.
