Statement: Return To Football

Burgess Hill Town FC Ltd.

The FA have released a brief statement following this afternoon’s Government announcement.

“We welcome the UK Government’s announcement today and we are very pleased that organised sports, which include Steps 3-6 of the National League System [NLS], Tiers 3-6 of the Women’s Football Pyramid [WFP] and competitive grassroots football, can look forward to resuming from 2nd December.

We are also delighted to see the beginning of the safe return of fans in stadiums for elite sports events and confirmation that spectators at non-elite sports will be able to attend events in line with Covid-secure guidance for each tier.

We will continue our ongoing dialogue with Government to clarify the details and next steps, and provide further updates in due course.“
