Match Day Protocols

Good Morning, This email has been sent to all League, Club and Team Secretaries.

Thank you to all SYFA members for all they have done in getting us to back to the stage of allowing football to return. While we understand these are challenging times, we do have to ask again that everyone involved in arranging activity are following all the guidance to enable us to continue with football activity.

 Please find below the links to the Match Day Protocols that have been approved via the Scottish Government and Sportscotland. We must reinforce the importance of following all these Match Day protocols to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the sport.

All the best,
