RAF FA Guidance on the return to outdoor grassroots Football

The RAF FA provides the following information with regards to the return of outdoor grassroots football (from 29 March 2021):

It is imperative that both The FA (click here) and RAF Directorate of Sport (DRS) guidance IBN1821 RAF Sport - Pathway to Resumption is followed (click here). 

As organised outdoor football activities will be classed as ‘Off-Duty’ until 17 May 21 it is important that The Heads of Establishment provide permission for all football activities (training and in Unit fixtures) as they are the risk holder for activity. Personnel may wish to consider seeking their own insurance policies to ensure that they are covered.

With no Duty Travel until 17 May 21 the RAF FA is currently looking at re-scheduling 2020-21 RAF Cup fixtures given that the season has been extended until the end of June. A decision on this will be conveyed in due course.
