FAW Cup competitions to start earlier than normal in 2021-22 season

Following the cancellation of the majority of competitions in the 2020/21 season, FAW Cups will kick-off earlier than normal in 2021/22.

The decision to start earlier has been taken following guidance issued in the Welsh Government Coronavirus Control Plan, which advises that ‘spring and summer give us hope of more freedom, as rates of infection fall and more people are vaccinated.’

The Control Plan also details that ‘scientific modelling from a range of sources points to the very high likelihood of a third wave of infections later this year.’

Therefore, the FAW is looking to maximise the playing opportunities where possible in the 2021/22 season, whilst taking into account the possible threat of further interruptions to competitions.

As previously stated, all entries for cancelled FAW Cup Competitions (JD Welsh Cup, FAW Amateur Trophy, FAW Women’s Cup & FAW Youth Cup) will be rolled-over to the equivalent competition for the 2021/22 season and entry fees for these teams will be waived.
