The FAW have continued to work with Welsh Government and Sport Wales to develop an overall approach for the return of football in Wales.

We support Sport Wales’ message to remain patient during this time, as there are still many challenges to overcome before all sport in Wales can return in some capacity. 

Currently the Coronavirus regulations in Wales allow individuals to practice football training skills individually and the opportunity to play football with your household at home or in an open space, not in overcrowded areas. 

Individuals are currently also permitted to kick a football with one member of another household in an open space as long as the individuals can keep a 2 metre distance between them at all times in addition to ensuring robust hand hygiene practices are adhered to. Individuals must follow government guidance regarding the need to wash their hands for 20 seconds with soap and water or hand sanitiser. 

To aid with football skills training the McDonald's and FAW Fun Football Skills videos are available on the FA Wales YouTube to help encourage activity for children in a fun and innovative way.
