TRAINING guidelines have been released by the Football Association of Wales following the suspension of all fixtures due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.

The governing body opted to halt all competitive matches across the pyramid until April 4, with the domestic game following other sports across the world by implementing the same measures.

The FAW has left the decision of training up to the clubs and their facilities, but stated that public health guidelines “must be followed” to prevent the risk of spreading the disease.

An FAW spokesperson, said: “Any decision regarding training is a matter for a club and/or training facility provider, but the public health guidelines must be followed at all times.”

The FAW also issued advice from their insurance providers Bluefin, which stated they would not be covered financially if they contract Coronavirus under their accident policy.

A statement, read: "If a player suffered an injury from an accident during a training session or match the policy will respond accordingly.

"If a player is absent from work as a result of contracting Coronavirus, they would not be covered under the FAW personal accident policy for any benefits including loss of earnings.

"The policy in place does not extend for claims related to sickness; it will only respond in relation to injuries sustained through an accident in training/playing or travelling to and from such sessions."

The FAW have also cancelled their upcoming C semi-professional international against England at Caernarfon Town, with the challenge matches against the United States of America and Austria also not going ahead.

A FIFA spokesman, added: “We are working in close cooperation with relevant national and international public health authorities (most notably the World Health Organisation) and, taking into account the expert advice that we have received on the matter, we consider this measure and recommendation to be the most appropriate and responsible step to take under the current circumstances.“
