Returning to Football after Covid

It is recommended that players, managers and coaches that are returning to football after having covid take extra precautions to avoid ongoing issues due to long covid:

  • Keep their first initial fitness activity to 15 minutes max and then increase from there. For the first 2 weeks post covid, training and play should be less intense. Intensity and duration should increase gradually.

  • Manage their own health needs - take rests when needed.

  • Seek medical advice if experiencing chest pain, shortness of breath and/or have a rapid or irregular heart beat.
