Play Suspended - FA Guidelines during National Lockdown


The Football Association [The FA] has provided an update for ‘non-elite’ football in England following the UK Government’s announcement on new national Covid-19 restrictions that will be in place from Thursday 5 November 2020 until Wednesday 2 December 2020.


Moor Mead FC will adhere to the measures in full (seen below), meaning that all training and matches are immediately suspended until 2nd December 2020, or any other date when The FA announces we can resume.


" As a result of the UK Government’s new national Covid-19 restrictions, and the publication of bespoke guidance from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport [DCMS], the impact on ‘non elite’ football in England will include the suspension of the following during this period:

  • All fixtures and training for Steps 3-6 of the National League System [NLS];

  • All fixtures and training for Tiers 3-7 of the Women’s Football Pyramid [WFP];

  • All fixtures and training for the Regional NLS Feeder Leagues;

  • All fixtures and training for The Barclays FA WSL Academy League;

  • All fixtures and training for FA Girls Regional Talent Clubs;

  • All fixtures and training for indoor and outdoor youth and adult grassroots football.

The UK Government has confirmed that school sport can continue as an exemption during this period.


Re-starting football at these levels has taken substantial determination and commitment from stakeholders across the game and The FA would like to thank everyone for their vital contributions.


However, health and wellbeing remain the priority, so it is extremely important that clubs, players, coaches, match officials, league officials, volunteers, parents, carers and facility providers adhere to the UK Government’s new national Covid-19 restrictions during this period. "


MMFC wishes that all of our players, coaches and supporters stay safe and well during this temporary suspension, and we look forward to seeing you back at training soon.
