Return to Play Update - 11 Dec

England Tier 3

We have reviewed the approach taken by other outdoor team sports, the finalised government regulations for sport, and had some further discussions about our current Return-to-Play guidance.  As implied in our previous announcement we are updating our guidance so that clubs in England Tier 3 areas are now permitted to play under the Phase C guidance.

  • PHASE D can be played in TIER 1
  • PHASE C can be played in TIER 2
  • PHASE C can be played in TIER 3

Northern Ireland

As of 11th December, some resumption of organised sport is permitted in Northern Ireland, and so we are moving back to Phase C guidance for outdoor play only, effective today.  Clubs are required to do an updated and new risk assessment for their activities.
