The Game Continues

Updated 21st October 2020

As a covid-secure facility for outdoor organised team sports, we are open for play as normal. In respect of local restrictions, our changing rooms will remain closed and our bar openings will be limited. Face coverings will be required in our clubhouses, but your game can go on as normal. We want to be sure that you are able to play in the safest way possible and so have invested significantly to enhance the safety features of our clubs.

The safety of our customers, teams and community remain our priority and it's key we all play our part. You can find out more about the local restrictions that may change your game below.

RESTRICTIONS IN ENGLAND

We are pleased to announce that we are still open for play across all of our sites following the introduction of the local alert levels. We'll be closing our bar areas for those clubs in high and very high alert regions, but your game will remain unchanged.

At every opportunity, we are working with local authorities to ensure we are compliant and our sites remain covid-secure. The goal posts will continue to move, and we’ll continue to adapt.

Find out more about what the covid alert level’s mean for your local club below.

Restrictions in Scotland

We do have circuit breaker restrictions currently in place for our Scottish clubs. Following Nicola Sturgeons latest announcement, our clubs in Glasgow are closed for adult football bookings until the 2nd November. While we're disappointed, the safety of our players and wider community remains our number one priority. Both Glasgow South and Glasgow West will be open for Under 18's throughout.

Football in Aberdeen will remain unaffected, but we will be closing our bar area until further notice. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

Covid Marshals

We have dedicated covid marshals on site during our peak times to ensure we are covid-secure. They will be on hand to ensure adherence to the restrictions in place to keep customers and staff safe, and to assist with any customer safety queries.

 

Track & Trace

We have a robust Track & Trace system implemented to allow us to operate with confidence. We require all customers to register their details to allow us to support the NHS Track & Trace effort. At Scottish locations, we have made this easy with QR codes on all pitch gates and walkways. We’ll hold your details for 21 days should the NHS contact tracing team request them. In England, we have the official NHS Test & Trace QR codes readily available to check in with using the official app.

We’ll have covid marshalls on hand to help with this.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you open?

Yes, as a covid-secure facility for outdoor organised sports we are open for football as normal.

What are you doing to keep players safe?

We want to be sure that you are able to play in the safest way possible and so have invested significantly to enhance the safety features of our clubs. These additional provisions include face coverings when dwelling indoors, hand sanitizer units installed on pitches and throughout the clubhouses, perspex screens at all point of sale locations and a minimum of 1 metre+ social distancing grids on pitch walkways and through reception areas. Our bars are closed in high and very high covid alert level areas. For those clubs in medium covid alert level areas the bar will close at 10pm and be limited to table service only. Our changing room areas will remain closed until such a time that the guidance allows.

We have also significantly invested in our free app to allow players to easily pay their share before play to reduce the time spent in club. You can download the app here.

Do I have to wear a mask while playing?

No, you are not required to wear a face covering while playing. 

We do however require all players and visitors to wear a face covering inside the clubhouse – you can remove these when seated in the bar area.

We want to play 5-a-side – does the rule of 6 apply?

When in play, the rule of 6 does not apply, you can play full contact football. The rule of 6 must be adhered to while not in play: this applies to our walkways, our clubhouses and in outdoor common areas. All customers must respect this in line with the current government guidelines.

Can we play contact?

Yes, you can play full contact football.

Are the changing rooms open?

No, our changing rooms are not open at the moment. We ask that all players come ready for their game. Our toilets are still open as normal.

Can we still use the bar after our game?

Our bars remain open for clubs within the medium covid alert level. We’ll be offering table service only and our last orders will be at 9.30pm. This in line with the current government restrictions.

For clubs in Scotland and those in England within high and very high covid alert regions, our bars will remain closed until further notice.

Can I pay cash?

We do still accept cash, but in the interests of safety we are asking all customers to use contactless payment where possible. We can only accept one transaction in club per booking, so we ask that all players who can pay their share via the web or app before their game.

Can my friends watch our game?

For now, we cannot allow spectators. With narrow walkways and one-way-systems in place, we ask that where possible there is no dwelling at the sides of the pitches. 

Do we have to be the same household to play?

No, you do not. Outdoor organised sports are exempt from both the rule of 6 and household limitations. In our bar areas you will be expected to adhere to the current government restrictions.

How can we remain socially distant?

While in play, there is no requirements to remain socially distant. We have one way systems and 1 metre+ grids in place to ensure you can retain adequate distance to stay safe.

I don’t want to give my details for Track & Trace. Can I still play?

We require all customers to register their details to allow us to support the NHS Track & Trace effort. At Scottish locations, we have made this easy with QR codes on all pitch gates and walkways. We’ll hold your details for 21 days should the NHS contact tracing team request them. In England, we have the official NHS Test & Trace QR codes readily available to check in with using the official app.
