U18 football given the green light by Welsh Government

The Welsh Government has today (26 March) provided confirmation that organised outdoor activities and sports for under-18s can resume from Saturday, 27 March, as the current public health conditions are favourable. 

The FAW has communicated directly with all Area Associations, Leagues and clubs about the FAW’s Return to Play protocols, which are now confirmed and can be found in our COVID-19 Hub

Following discussions and lobbying by the FAW, the Welsh Government have made revisions to the number of people who can gather indoors and outdoors at Alert Level 2 of their Coronavirus Control Plan. The 30 people outdoors and 15 people indoors limits have been lifted to 50 and 30 respectively. 

This is a significant development for the return of senior league competitions and the FAW is currently reviewing the impact of this change on its roadmap for the return of football.
