The rule of six will apply to all indoor organised football for anyone over the age of 18. As a result, indoor training and 3 v 3 games can continue for adults but they must be limited to groups of no more than six people and follow our updated guidance on re-starting football.
If groups of six adults are likely to mix during either indoor training or games they must not go ahead.
Everyone under the age of 18 or living with disabilities will be exempt from the rule of six. However, while indoor training and games will not be limited for these people, they must also follow The FA’s updated guidance on re-starting football.
• Face coverings must be worn by staff at all times and by participants when they are not taking part in training, games or seated at a table to eat or drink;
• All indoor facilities – including those with club house bars – must close at 10pm;
• All indoor facilities must also support the UK Government’s guidance on NHS test and trace and implement the use of QR codes from 24 September 2020.
