Dorset County Football Association COVID-19

(Victoria Pinion 14/03/2020)
Statement on COVID-19

Updated 13th March (4.27pm)

FA Spokesperson: “The FA is fully aware that there are questions about whether grassroots football in England should be played because of the Covid-19 virus."

“Consistent with Government advice, The FA is recommending that grassroots football is able to continue as usual for now, with each league or centre making its own individual decision based on its local situation and the availability of players and officials. However, we would fully respect and support any leagues, centres or teams that wish to postpone fixtures in light of the Covid-19 virus.

The decision to postpone all professional football in England has been taken with the integrity of the competitions in mind, considering the availability of players, staff and facilities.

We will continue to monitor all Government advice and keep the situation under constant review, with the priority being the health and wellbeing of all. Further updates will follow as needed."

Updated 13th March (11.15am)

Following the recent statement from the The FA, Premier League, EFL and FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship all have collectively agreed to postpone the professional game in England until Friday 3 April at the earliest.

Statement from the FA

Please be advised that all grassroots football adult and youth will continue as normal. Dorset FA will be operating as usual which includes all bookings at the Specsavers County Ground and educational courses. We would remind individuals of basic hand hygiene protocols and cough etiquette and to follow the advice issued by the government.

Following advice from The FA’s medical department please see the below advice with regards to COVID-19 and our Coach Education Courses.

If you have travelled to and from the affected areas in the past 14 days, have been in contact with anyone affected by the virus or are showing symptoms we ask that you do not travel to Dorset FA’s Coaching Courses and advise us accordingly. The recommendation is for you to seek advice from NHS 111.
