Return to Rugby Roadmap

The RFU has announced a national roadmap to support a return to community rugby activity. This roadmap consists of six stages, Stage A relating to individual training with one other person, moving through to Stage F when there can be a return to competitive matches against other teams. We are now at Stage D.

A roadmap infographic and guidance on restarting competitive grassroots rugby have been produced to clarify what clubs should have in place and what activity is permitted.

The Stage D guidance provides detailed information on what activity is and isn’t now permitted.

Facility Reopening

In line with the Return to Rugby Roadmap, the government has announced that some rugby facilities can reopen from 4 July. It is important that each club makes its own decision about why and when it would like to reopen facilities.

The RFU has produced guidance for rugby clubs to help determine the most appropriate way forward as well as detailed resources on risk, facility reopening checklists and how to create an action plan. You will also find links to other useful information published by government, Public Health England and Sport England.
