The FAW National Cup Board have made the difficult decision to terminate the remaining FAW Cup Competitions for the 2019/20 season.
The decision brings an end to the JD Welsh Cup, FAW Women’s Cup, FAW Amateur Trophy, FAW Youth Cup, FAW U16 Girls’ Cup and the FAW Regions’ Cup. As a consequence, no title holders will be declared for the 2019/20 season.
The Cup Board expressed their sympathies to the remaining clubs in communications to them today (30 July) and explained that the outstanding prize money will be distributed equally in the respective competitions.
A key consideration by the Cup Board was sporting integrity, in that squads are now changing in preparation for the 2020/21 season and will therefore be different to those competing in the competitions during the 2019/20 season.
The current Welsh Government Regulations continue to prevent clubs from participating competitively and as the pandemic situation continues, the available dates to reschedule the competition has also become problematic as the FAW plans for a return to football with the 2020/21 season.
