The Football Association of Wales Board of Directors (the FAW Board) have today (19 May) ratified the recommendation of the National League Board and agreed to curtail the 2019/20 season for Tiers 1 to 4. The decision has been taken as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with Welsh Government’s lockdown guidelines and measures.
The FAW Board took into consideration the health and safety of all those involved with these leagues. Furthermore, the FAW Board also considered the specific economic and financial impact of attempting to finish the season during the pandemic and therefore felt it was imperative not to risk the long-term financial stability of the leagues and their clubs.
The Community Game Board has previously decided that once a solution had been confirmed for Tiers 1-4 on how to conclude the 2019/20 season that Recreational Football in the country would follow suit.
As a result, all adult Recreational Football has been curtailed with league standings finalised via the points per game method. Decisions by FAW on promotions and relegations will follow.
