Safer Return To Play - Match Day Protocol
Grassroots Referees 02/07/2020

Referees are an integral part of football and we must ensure that we are well prepared prior to our return to play. This ‘Safer Return To Play - Match Day Protocol’ provides guidance and direction to match officials on how to manage the administration and the refereeing of games. The ‘Laws of the Game’ provide referees with all the necessary authority to deal with all on-field issues, whilst other matters should be reported to the leagues who run the competitions.

The primary aim of this protocol is to minimise risk of transmission of the COVID-19 virus to as low a level as possible. The principles of risk mitigation are identical for training and for refereeing. To view and download the full pdf document, please Click Here

Dear Club Secretaries

Firstly, can we start by putting on record our admiration and appreciation of the tremendous work being done by all our members on the front line, across all the daily services, ensuring our safety and some sense of normality in challenging times.
