COVID-19 UPDATE - 25th August 2021


England - Phase 5 from 19th July

There are no set restrictions on how many people can take part in sport and physical activity, indoors and outdoors.

All forms of activities can take place without set restrictions. We advise you to refer to your national governing body’s (NGB’s) guidance where relevant.

All sports facilities can open, including ancillary facilities. There are no indoor capacity limits, however, venues may put in place some restrictions and guidance for enclosed areas.

Organised sport participation events such as (but not limited to) races, rides and organised walks can take place outdoors with no capacity caps for participants or spectators.



Wales Phase 5 from 9th August

From Saturday 7 August Wales will move to Alert Level 0, meaning further benefits for sport and physical activity. 

In Alert Level 0 there are no limits on the number of people that can father for organised indoor activities, stadia, events and organised outdoor activities.

There is also no legal requirement for social distancing.

All sports and exercise are permitted, however all clubs should follow sport specific guidelines from their National Governing Body.

All leisure and fitness facilities remain open and should be following appropriate risk assessment guidelines.



Scotland - Phase 5 from 19th July - please see table below for Local restrictions due to area level's



Northern Ireland - Phase 5 from 2nd June

There is no requirement for there to be discrete groups for indoor activities. 


Efforts can be made by organisers to minimise group size or have separate groups to minimise risks for participants. 


Maximum group size is ultimately determined by a risk assessment of the indoor space, so is venue dependent. 


Organisers should be mindful that maximum occupancy levels are not a target and minimising usage numbers will minimise risks to participants and staff.
