We acknowledge the Scottish Government update on their new COVID-19 Strategic Framework and continue to seek clarification from the Scottish Government and sportscotland on how Scottish grassroots football will be affected by the new system.

We have received significant amounts of feedback from across the game on how the current restrictions have negatively impacted many people across the Scottish grassroots football community and we have communicated this in our discussions.

We are aware that the football family require clarity on specific aspects of the guidance and have requested that from sportscotland and Scottish Government. We will provide an update as soon as it is received.

The new Scottish Government Tiered approach will come into effect on Monday, 2 November, in the meantime we would ask that all clubs continue to follow the current guidance: www.scottishfa.co.uk/news/scottish-fa-statement-on-new-government-guidelines/?rid=13929   

We fully understand the impact the current situation is causing across the game and once again would like to thank all clubs, players and volunteers for their hard work in applying and adhering to all the guidance.
