Hot on the heels of their statement earlier today regarding a game controversially played this past Saturday, (of which the Midland Storm have now moved away from the league) the 8GL has released a statement on their return to action plan.

It would seem, from the statement, that there was an expectation within the 8GL teams that they were planning to play more matches between now and October 24th. It’s quite hard to unpick the situation as the 8GL are at present a faceless entity without an official website and have enforced a ‘media blackout’ at present so we can’t get any dialogue established with them.

Please see the full offical statement from the 8GL below:

8GL Official Statement On Return To Action Plan

Throughout the recent pandemic, the 8GL has continually reviewed government guidelines and representatives have been in regular contact with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sports (DCMS) with the aim of returning to action as soon as it was safe to do so.

Likewise, with many other sports, the 8GL had hoped that this would have happened sooner, alongside the league’s back to action plan which had been agreed upon in previous months.

Unfortunately, as the events following the pandemic have unfolded, a number of the clubs within the league have recently fallen under the areas of heightened lockdown measures. As a result, it has been agreed that the league would re-evaluate its return to action plan on Saturday 24th October with the hopes of a clearer plan for the future.

Any matches played prior to this date will not be sanctioned by the 8GL and any teams that chose to so do will be in direct conflict with the league’s operational rules.

Although the 8GL is keen to have teams back in action and playing 8v8 football, the health and safety of all our members remains our top priority

We appreciate that this will be disappointing to many of our members and we would like to offer our support as always to both physical and mental health in these unprecedented times

The 8GL return to action plan will be published in due course.
