Question

To ask the Scottish Government when it will provide an update on plans for amateur football to resume.

Current status: Answered by Joe FitzPatrick on 11 December 2020


Answer

Amateur football is able to be played in areas under Tiers 0-2 of the current restrictions.

The Scottish Government works closely with the Scottish Amateur Football Association on a range of issues, and has had regular dialogue over recent months about the impact of the pandemic on the amateur game.

We will continue with this dialogue with the football authorities – including the SAFA – so amateur football can resume across Scotland when it is safe to do so.
