More details

Ireland and European football has proven that Summer football has so many advantages for all ages.

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

Petitions must concern an issue on which the Senedd or the Welsh Government can take direct action and, therefore, we are not able to accept this petition.

Protocols and guidelines produced by the Football Association of Wales are a matter for that organisation. You could consider raising the issue with them or starting a different petition about something that is the responsibility of the Senedd or Welsh Government.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
