Boxing Scotland is happy to provide a projected Roadmap towards a Return to Boxing, as restrictions hopefully continue to ease over the coming weeks and months.
Boxing Scotland has been working tirelessly in the background to liaise with both Public Health Scotland and sportscotland in order to facilitate our sport’s return and follow the latest Scottish Government advice.
We hope this projected timetable will allow members and clubs to see some light at the end of the tunnel and that we are moving forward.
However, please note; These guidelines and dates are only a projection and are subject to the Covid conditions at the time and approval by the Scottish Government, sportscotland and the Boxing Scotland Medical Commission, and may be adjusted.
As always, the official guidance at each step of the way will be sent to Club’s Covid Co-ordinators in the first instance.
Expected future Scottish Government Target dates based on 3 weekly First minister updates;
In order for our sport to safely return, Boxing Scotland will consider the advice from the medical commission with regards medicals and draw up plans for a return to competitive Boxing. This will be communicated to or membership in due course.
After a year without full activity, and whilst there will be an understandable demand for sparring, it must be considered that boxers will return at different levels of fitness and preparation. This is a significant safety consideration that Boxing Scotland will consider as we safely bring back our sport. Competitive boxing in any form will not be permitted until Boxing Scotland confirms that it can go ahead. We will provide updates as soon as this information is available.
It must be stressed that clubs follow the Boxing Scotland Guidelines V14 with regards travel. Travel restricts between local authorities will be updated by the Scottish Government in due course.
To aid with planning, permission to Box Abroad will not be granted until the government allows it under the International travel regulations. Boxing Scotland along with our partner organisations will continue to monitor and update the membership when further details are known.

All restrictions will be kept under review to ensure that they remain proportionate and necessary to address the ongoing public health emergency.
