FIFA has outlined some strong medical steps towards the return of football for their Member Associations (MAs) after establishing a working group to examine the medical considerations necessary for football across the world.
The working group with support and representation from each of the six confederations and the World Health Organization outlined some important steps to consider before football activities can safely take place.
In a document signed by FIFA General Secretary Fatma Samoura and sighted by footballmadeinghana.com, the world football governing body together with the World Health Organization has come up with the football-specific COVID-19 risk assessment tool.
The assessment tool, according to FIFA, is an intensive work they did with World Health Organization in the fight against COVID-19.
The major steps outlined by FIFA include but not limited to the strict observation of social distancing, continuous testing and monitoring at football centers, strict COVID-19 screening procedure as well as travel precautions and facilities.
With German Bundesliga marking the return of football despite the threat of COVID-19, the EPL, La Liga and Serie A are all set to return next month.
Several other countries are set to stage a return to action but FIFA wants Member Associations to strictly adhere to the measures outlined for the safety of all participants.
It is, however, unclear when football will be returning in Ghana but the Ghana FA has set a June 30 deadline to take a final decision on the matter.
