The Derbyshire FA are working to ensure that the grassroots football community is kept as up-to-date as possible with the latest information and recommendations relating to coronavirus.
The latest advice from The FA is that any decision to continue playing or to postpone competitions is a matter for each league as autonomous bodies within the game. It is not felt that all grassroots fixtures need to be cancelled as a matter of course at this time, although some may need to be if teams are self-isolating and are unable to play, or if teams are concerned about playing and the league agrees to postpone.
The FA, Premier League, EFL and FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship have collectively agreed to postpone the professional game in England until 3rd April 2020 at the earliest.
This action, which will be kept under constant review, has been taken due to the increasing numbers of clubs taking steps to isolate their players and staff because of the Covid-19 virus.
It will also apply to all England team fixtures at every level and all FA competitions including the FA Cup and the Women’s FA Cup, along with academy and youth-team matches.
Further updates will be added to this page as appropriate.
