Jersey FA president Bradley Vowden is set to discuss proposals with fellow inter-insular committee members from Guernsey and Alderney, including the likelihood of staging the annual men’s and women’s finals at Springfield on the last weekend of June.
The talks are set to focus on Guernsey’s new inbound travel policy, which includes a minimum seven-day isolation period and tests – costing £25 each – on arrival and on day seven. Travellers must also then adhere to ‘passive follow-up’, which includes not returning to work without prior discussion with and approval by the Island’s Public Health department.
Vowden is set to ask the Guernsey FA to explain in further detail the ‘passive’ restrictions, which could make or break plans to hold both the semi-final [between Guernsey and Alderney] and final this year.
As of Monday, inbound travellers to Jersey from ‘green’ regions [fewer than 50 cases per 100,000 people in the previous fortnight] are only required to isolate until they have received their first negative test result.
Jersey was originally due to host the 2020 final, before all events were cancelled as a result of the pandemic.
