COVID-19: DISCIPLINE UPDATE

The most up-to-date guidance regarding discipline

Worcestershire FA – Discipline Department Update – Coronavirus (COVID-19) – 17th March 2020

 

Following the government announcement on 16th March 2020, for people to avoid social contact and gatherings where possible, we are now advising that all grassroots football in England is POSTPONED for the foreseeable future.

 

Throughout this period, we have taken government advice with the priority being the health and wellbeing of all. We will continue to work closely with the grassroots game during this time. We are in regular communication with the government and the situation within English football at all levels remains under regular review. Further updates will follow as needed.

 

To support participants, we have created the following guidance.

 

County FA Disciplinary Hearings

 

  1. Correspondence Hearings

    To minimise the need for attendance at meetings in person, all Correspondence hearings are to be heard by WebEx/telephone until further notice.

     

  2. Personal Hearings

All Personal Hearings are postponed. Consideration will be given to offering a Correspondence Hearing as per point a) above. If a participant has been charged and wishes for the case to proceed by correspondence only, please contact the team (details below).

The important message is to ensure the safety of everyone as the primary concern.
