In light of the Government’s recent update to the COVID-19 Protection Framework, taking effect from 11.59pm 4 April 2022, New Zealand Football has today released updated guidance, developed with Sport NZ and the federations, for delivering football and futsal at the Red, Orange and Green settings.

All community football and futsal activity will continue to be classified as Gatherings and need to follow the Government’s rules for Gatherings.
