Only players, coaches and Gibraltar FA officials will be allowed to access the Victoria Stadium. Signage will be displayed around the Victoria Stadium with the necessary advice.
Traditional pre match and post-match handshakes have also been suspended with immediate effect.
All clubs have been advised, by the Gibraltar FA, to implement a 1 parent per child policy at youth team training sessions.

We would like to thank everyone for their understanding and co-operation and urge everyone to take heed of the advice issued by HM Government of Gibraltar and the Gibraltar Health Authority. If anyone has any concerns please call the 111 Covid-19 helpline for further advice
