Completed petition Allow a minimum of one parent or guardian to watch children's organised football matches

Currently parents are allowed to watch children's football training sessions in an outdoor environment. However, parents are not allowed to watch any organised matches.

This seems to be contradictory and excessive when other precautionary measures are available and viable. For example England allow parents to spectate from a distance of 3m away from pitch side. It would be a sensible option to introduce this along with all adults to wear a face covering and observe a 2m rule.
