After Covid-19, there will be football.
That’s the simple message from the World’s Largest Provider of Small Sided Football, as the country tries to get used to the lockdown.
Prime Minister, Boris Johnson – who has given his support to Leisure Leagues previously – has announced drastic measures for the UK to ensure the containment of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Leisure Leagues in Grimsby were amongst the first small sided football providers to put health first, with an immediate suspension of all their football and netball leagues on the morning of Tuesday 17 March, following the Prime Ministers’ speech the evening before.
Since then, major companies of all sectors, announced their temporary suspension of all leisure activities and closure of non-essential businesses. This means that football and netball leagues in the UK will not run until at least April 14th. Individual information relating to the league will be posted both here on your league page and on the local Leisure Leagues Grimsby facebook page. Please ensure you find your local Leisure Leagues facebook page – simply by searching for “Leisure Leagues Grimsby” on facebook then like, share and follow as any and all news is posted here first.
A spokesman from Leisure Leagues commented:
“First and foremost, the health and well-being of every individual in the country – both young or old, fit or otherwise takes precedent over playing football or netball. We urge you all to listen to government and health professional’s advice and please, please, stay at home. Protect you and your family first as football will return once we have beaten this terrible pandemic.” He added that Leisure Leagues were already making plans to resume the leagues as soon as possible.
“Our promise is a simple one,” he said. “When all this is over – and it will be over – we will be back, exactly the same as before, providing crucial community focus and fitness all over the world.”
He explained further; “After this lockdown is lifted, sport will be even more vital than it had been before. Physical and mental health will be affected in the most unprecedented way by all this, and it is up to companies like Leisure Leagues to help and be at the forefront of the nation’s recovery, and truly bring the nation back together.”
