FIFA STATEMENT

14 March 20207:38am

Overnight, FIFA released the following statement concerning the COVID-19 outbreak / Dros nos, mae FIFA wedi rhyddhau'r datganiad canlynol yn sgil COVID-19:

“In light of the current situation concerning the Coronavirus, the Bureau of the FIFA Council has decided that the general football rules which normally oblige clubs to release players for national team matches will not apply for the up-coming international windows in March/April.

“The situation is rapidly evolving across the world and various international travel restrictions have already been imposed by different public authorities.

“FIFA understands that to hold the matches under current circumstances might not only present potential health risks to players (and to the general public) but would also, most likely, compromise the sporting integrity of such matches insofar as certain teams may be deprived of their best squads whilst others may not.

”To avoid any unnecessary health risks and also situations of potential sporting unfairness, we therefore recommend that all international matches previously scheduled to take place in March and April should now be postponed until such time that they can take place in a safe and secure environment, both for players and for the general public. The final decision on this issue rests with the respective competition organisers or relevant member association in case of friendlies.

“The qualifying matches for the FIFA World Cup in both Asia and South America have already been postponed following consultation between FIFA and the confederations concerned.

“In consultation with the confederations and relevant stakeholders, FIFA will be studying the possibilities for re-scheduling any postponed matches and is confident that with goodwill and flexibility from all sides, appropriate solutions will be found to allow the matches to take place in due course and with minimal disruption.

“We are working in close cooperation with relevant national and international public health authorities (most notably the World Health Organisation) and, taking into account the expert advice that we have received on the matter, we consider this measure and recommendation to be the most appropriate and responsible step to take under the current circumstances.“ 

The FAW has already taken the decision to cancel the international challenge matches against Austria and USA, in addtion to the postponement of the C international with England. / Mae CBDC eisoes wedi penderfynu canslo'r gemau cyfeillgar rhyngwladol yn erbyn Awstria a'r UDA, yn ogystal â gohirio'r gêm ryngwladol C yn erbyn Lloegr.

ADVICE ABOUT CLUB TRAINING SESSIONS & INSURANCE

13 March 20203:44pm

The FAW would like to clarify advice with regards to club training sessions. 

Any decision regarding training is a matter for a club and/or training facility provider, but the public health guidelines must be followed at all times.

The FAW's insurance providers - Bluefin - have advised the following: 

"If a player suffered an injury from an accident during a training session or match the policy will respond accordingly.

"If a player is absent from work as a result of contracting coronavirus they would not be covered under the FAW personal accident policy for any benefits including loss of earnings. 

"The policy in place does not extend for claims related to sickness; it will only respond in relation to injuries sustained through an accident in training/playing or traveling to and from such sessions."

UEFA POSTPONES YOUTH TOURNAMENTS

12 March 20201:50pm

UEFA has issued a statement with regards to its youth tournaments: 

"In the light of developments due to the spread of COVID-19 in Europe and the related travelling restrictions imposed by governments, all Elite round mini-tournaments of the U17 and WU17, U19 and WU19 European championships, due to take place between 14 March and 14 April 2020, are postponed.
