Suspension of all football

The following is taken from the SAFA website and concerns us all.

As of today, Scottish Amateur football, under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA, will be suspended until further notice.

The Scottish FA Board made its decision in the interests of the health and safety of players, match officials, staff, supporters and the general public.

Ian Maxwell, Scottish FA Chief Executive, said, “Since the guidance outlined by governments last night we have been engaged in extensive dialogue to clarify the position and implications of that guidance for Scottish football.
“Today’s announcement is made in the interests of public health but, equally, the health and safety of players, match officials, and staff across the game. This is of paramount importance as the country enters the ‘delay’ phase of the coronavirus pandemic.
“It is also why the Scottish FA is compelled to ensure that the suspension is cascaded through the non-professional and grassroots games until further notice.”

Training - The decision to suspend or continue training is at each club’s discretion at this time, however clubs must ensure to follow the current medical guidance issued by the Government and the Health Authorities when making this decision.

Friendly Matches – Under no circumstances will friendly matches be permitted as this is included in the directive from the Scottish FA in relation to matches.

If any more details or updates are received, they will be sent to all clubs
