P-05-1074 Raise the number of people allowed in outdoor spaces so football can restart for all teams in Wales

 

This petition was submitted by Mark Morgans having collected a total of 5,330 signatures.

 

Text of Petition:                     

COVID 19 - the current rules / legislation only allows 30 people to be in an outdoor space! With football teams needing 11v11 plus officials and staff....it’s pretty impossible to run competitive adult leagues until this number is lifted! Games can be run safely and effectively if the number is increased to 30 people not including the players and officials on the field. Please liaise with the Football Association of Wales and consider raising the numbers so Tier 2 & below can start playing again.

 

Additional Information:

Please see English FA / Scottish FA and Irish FA who have started pretty much all their local and national football leagues.
