Update: The fixtures Director has rearranged all league fixtures to commence from the 5th December.
As a result of the UK Government’s new national Covid-19 restrictions, and subject to Members of Parliament voting tomorrow [Wednesday 4 November 2020] 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 FA’s aim is to ensure that the 2020/21 season is completed at these levels and will liaise with the relevant leagues in the NLS and WFP and the County Football Associations [CFAs] to provide support and establish appropriate options to do so if required.
All scheduled Western League fixtures from Saturday 7th November to Wednesday 2nd December (inclusive) will be rescheduled by the Fixtures Director to be played after 2nd December.
