Coronavirus - Jersey Grassroots Football Update

JFA Combination fixtures to go ahead this weekend.

Coronavirus Update 

As at 2pm on 13th March 2020 there has been no indication from the Government of Jersey, Public Health England or the FA that grassroots team sports should be postponed or cancelled. 

The advice from The FA at this current time is that grassroots fixtures do not need to be called off as a matter of course and that any decision to continue playing or to postpone their respective competitions is a matter for each league as autonomous bodies within the game. 

The JFA Combination League will continue with this weekend's fixtures. 

In line with government advice, at this time we are advising all clubs, leagues and match officials against carrying out the pre/post-match handshake(s) and/or other physical greetings as a precautionary measure at fixtures. We feel that shaking hands is easily avoidable since it poses an unnecessary risk, and we encourage everyone to continue with good hand hygiene.
