Following the government’s announcement today, for people to avoid social contact and gatherings where possible, we are now in consultation with the FA, NFA and NFL regarding the current guidance for grassroots football in England.
As things stand all football across England is off until further notice. This includes all junior football, senior football, Northern Football Alliance fixtures and all other footballing activities - this also includes football training and friendly fixtures.
Throughout this period, we are taking government advice with the priority being the health and wellbeing of all. The FA will continue to work closely with the grassroots game during this time.
The FA are in regular communication with the government and the situation within English football at all levels remains under regular review. Further updates will follow as needed.
Newcastle Blue Star Football Club will issue a further club statement tomorrow (Tuesday) after consultation with the county FA and its partners.
