Until 31st July: when ready, you can begin competitive training, with the overall group size (inclusive of coaches) being limited to 30 people.
From August: competitive matches to begin, for example pre-season fixtures, festivals and small-sided football competitions.
From September: grassroots leagues, men’s National League System, Women’s Football Pyramid tiers 3 to 6, and FA Competitions can commence.
