Oliver Dowden MP has confirmed that elite sport can continue.

In regards to football:

Everything from the National League North/South & up is considered ‘elite sport’.

Good news that Football is continuing.   Important that people stuck at home, Shielding etc have something like Football to watch on TV.

From skysports.com
"Premier League football and other elite sports can continue due to the testing regimes in place for professional sportspeople "

Hmm, do all three divisions in the National League have testing regimes?

The BBC’s @BBCVickiYoung
 reports:

“Schools stay open but club sport for children outside of that setting has to stop until December.”

Well the "elite" clubs have enough money to do testing, so should be made to do it, or forfeit all matches till they do.
