FAI updates Grassroots Safer Return to Train & Play Protocol

*The Football Association of Ireland has today updated the Grassroots Safer
Return to Play & Train Protocol to include guidelines around the increase
in the number of spectators allowed to attend outdoor events.*
 
The amended Protocol also features guidelines for Leagues and clubs looking
to hold a blitz or tournament over the summer months. The updates are in
line with the latest Government guidance which allow for crowds of 200 at
venues with a capacity up to 5,000 while 500 fans can attend games at
venues with capacity over 5,000.
 
As per the new Protocol, Leagues and clubs looking to host a blitz or
tournament must complete an event plan which is compliant with Public
Health Guidelines and the FAI Safer Return to Training & Play Protocol 8th
Edition. They must also complete a Risk Assessment, ensure both documents
are reviewed and approved by a COVID-19 Compliance Officer from each
participating club and apply formally to their affiliate body for
permission to host the blitz/tournament.
 
The FAI’s Head of Grassroots Ger McDermott said: “Fans can now attend all
our outdoor football events from today subject to the Government
guidelines, and we remind all our affiliates of our responsibility to
ensure our game remains safe during this pandemic and urge those attending
games not to congregate. We again ask all involved in our game to keep up
to date with the amended Protocol as we continue to enjoy our return to
football at all levels of the game.”
