The JD Cymru Premier has decided that no matches will be played for a minimum period of three weeks, due to the rapidly changing public health crisis in Wales.
This announcement follows the decision yesterday of the National Sport Group to rescind the elite status designation provided to the JD Cymru Premier, whilst Wales is at Alert Level 4 of the Welsh Government Control Plan for COVID-19.
The Welsh Premier Women’s League, Cymru North and Cymru South divisions have also lost their elite mantle for the time being.
Although fixtures between professional clubs are permitted to take place during Alert Level 4, the JD Cymru Premier has decided that no games will be played for a minimum three weeks, having fully taken into consideration the rapidly changing public health crisis in Wales.
If Wales remains at Alert Level 4, this will be reviewed at the end of that three week period of time.
Meanwhile, the elite status designation will be automatically re-instated should the Welsh Government move the country to a lower Alert Level.
Along with the Football Association of Wales, the JD Cymru Premier and its clubs urge everyone to follow the Welsh Government guidelines during the lockdown to limit the spread of COVID-19 to keep people safe and limit the impact on NHS Wales.
This means that the earliest that matches can resume will be on w/e 15-16 January.
