FAW Press Release

By Edryd Jones


The Football Association of Wales has taken the decision to extend the current suspension of all domestic football in Wales until at least Thursday, 30 April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The FAW is committed to exploring every possible option for all National Leagues to conclude the 2019/20 season by ensuring that matches are played as soon as it is safe to do so.
As a result, the FAW’s Board of Directors agreed today (20 March) to exercise their powers and indefinitely extend the 2019/20 season for all National Leagues, National Cup Competitions and the FAW Futsal League.

The current working documents for the National Leagues will be shared with the Area Associations in order to assist the planning for their own affiliated leagues in an attempt to find a solution for the resumption of football when it is safe to do so.

Meanwhile, the Welsh Government has announced a package of support for businesses, which can be found here: https://gov.wales/coronavirus-covid-19-support-businesses. We encourage clubs to review this information.

Above all, the most important priority for the FAW is the health and wellbeing of everyone. The FAW encourages everyone to follow the advice of the UK & Welsh Governments and Public Health Wales. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the pandemic.
