Essex FA Tier 4 update

We have noted the Government’s announcement today (Wednesday 23rd December) that the Colchester, Tendring and Uttlesford council areas will come under Tier 4 Covid-19 restrictions from 12:01am on Boxing Day.
Football for adult participants across ‘non-elite’ football in Tier 4 areas is not permitted, including all training and fixtures. The Government’s Tier 4 guidance states organised outdoor sport for under 18s and disabled people will be allowed, while there are exemptions for FA Girls’ Regional Talent Clubs. The Government’s guidelines on travel between tiers should be adhered to. These players cannot move in or out of Tier 4 to train or play.
