Montgomery County Soccer Fields to Open on September 14, 2020

Montgomery County Soccer Fields to Open on September 14, 2020

Montgomery County’s Community Use of Public Facilities (CUPF), an interagency board that schedules the use of facilities, will resume issuing field permits for soccer games in accordance with the County’s amended Executive Order No. 0980-20. That order re-categorized soccer from a high- to medium-risk sport, thereby allowing scrimmages and games to occur with conditions. Montgomery County Parks fields will be ready for play on Monday, Sept. 14.

Montgomery Parks staff and contractors are currently working to prepare fields for game play, including mowing, replacing goals and painting lines. School and County recreation fields are currently available for play in an “as is” condition. User groups may not paint lines on a school or recreation field without written permission from the school or recreation center.

Permits are available via www.ActiveMONTGOMERY.org.

Fields for which CUPF issues permits include:

  • MCPS elementary and middle schools.
  • MCPS high schools (requires school business administrator’s written permission).
  • MCRD community recreation centers.
  • Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) local parks.

Per Montgomery County health guidelines, play must adhere to several conditions including:

  • All sports participants, regardless of age, must comply with the face covering requirement and social distancing and hygiene requirements.
  • Maximum of 50 people can be present, including staff, coaches, players, parents, guardians or immediate family.
  • Tournaments, championships and events are strictly prohibited, unless a Letter of Approval is issued by the County Department of Health and Human Services.
  • Play and games with teams from outside of Maryland, Virginia or the District of Columbia is prohibited.

Montgomery County is currently in Reopening Phase 2, which limits sports games, regardless of whether they are indoor or outdoor, to low- and medium-risk sports. View the County’s reopening guidelines for youth and adult sports for more information and sport classification.
