FA online meeting takes place to discuss next season

19th June, 2020

The FA held an online meeting with all Step 5 and 6 Leagues, including the Toolstation Northern Counties East Football League, on Friday afternoon to discuss the strategy for starting the 2020/21 season.

Various scenarios have been planned by the FA, working out what would happen if the season was allowed to start on various different dates, starting in September in the earliest scenario and as late as January in the worst case.

All scenarios are dependent on Government guidance and would be subject to approval from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Points confirmed at the meeting were:

* As full as season as possible will be played,

* Football at our level will not be played behind closed doors as the FA understands the importance of bars and food outlets to club finances,

* As much inclusion as possible for our clubs in the FA Cup and FA Vase will take place, and

* Players' and other officials' commitments post-lockdown, as well as the potential impact on our volunteers, will be taken into consideration.

A full copy of the FA presentation will be made available in due course along with a document for all of our member clubs entitled 'Club Guidance on COVID-19 Return'.
