Union Rangers welcomes the return to football after the easing of restrictions due to Covid-19. However, the return to football is not what it was prior to the pandemic.
At Union Rangers, we consider the welfare of all our players, coaches and officials as a top priority. Therefore, the return to football will be met with strict terms and conditions.
These terms and conditions are set out by the Welsh government and the FAW.
It is vital every member at Union Rangers familiarise themselves to the new guidance regarding the return to football post Covid-19. Before you return to training every member must be officially briefed on the protocols. Please do not attend training if you haven't attended our electronic Return to training protocols briefing session.
The Return to football is going to be implemented through 4 phases. From Monday 13th July 2020, The FAW, following Welsh Government's guidance permitted a return to training.
The FAW Safer Return to Training Protocols.
