THE UK GOVERNMENT HAS GIVEN APPROVAL FOR OUTDOOR COMPETITIVE GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL TO RESTART, WITH MATCHES PERMITTED FROM THIS SATURDAY (1 AUGUST 2020)
This news will bring optimism and positivity to many of our referees, but it is important to say that returning to football should only be when it’s right for you to do so. There is no pressure to return and there will be no consequence or judgement for not returning. Everyone’s health, wellbeing and safety are the priorities.
To support and inform all referees ahead of matches restarting, referee specific guidance has been produced and is available below.
