Coronavirus - FA moves to close down 2019/20 season for grassroots football

The FA

County FA's will advise on how to close out the season

Yesterday (26th March),  The Football Association (FA) made an important announcement regarding Non-League, Womens, and Grassroots football with regard to the current Coronavirus crisis.

Here is the relevant extract of their announcement with regard to the grassroots game.

Furthermore, we can now confirm that we have decided that all grassroots football is concluded for the 2019-20 season. This will allow the game to move forward and to commence planning for next season. Our County Football Associations (CFAs) will be supporting grassroots leagues over the coming days to determine how they should close out their current competitions.

Where appropriate, the above decisions will be put to The FA Council for ratification.

Throughout this period we continue to seek guidance in respect of the government’s financial support packages relative to COVID-19 and how they are applicable to clubs in the NLS, the women’s football pyramid and the wider grassroots game.
