THE Football Association have issued further guidance on what grassroots football activities can take place during covid-19.

On Wednesday, the government allowed individuals to participate in unlimited exercise.

This includes playing football with the people living in your household and one other person who is living elsewhere.

The FA issued this statement: "Consistent with government advice, published on Wednesday 13 May, the following outdoor football activity is currently permitted.

"Playing football individually (individual skills or fitness activities), playing football with your family or other people living in your household, an individual can play football with one other person who is not from their household, and coaching an adult player one-to-one.

"All social distancing guidelines must be followed.

"Additionally, maintaining a grass or artificial football pitch is permitted, as long as social distancing and appropriate hygiene practices are adopted.

"If an individual is symptomatic, living in a household with a possible covid-19 infection or if you are classified as extremely vulnerable on health grounds, the guidance is that you should remain at home.

"The following football activity is not permitted at this time. Coaching a child (U18) from a different household one-to-one, and two or more people from one household playing with one person or more from outside their household.

"A child must have a parent/carer with them.

"We will continue to work with the Government and Sport England in order to provide guidance to grassroots football."
