FA Cup

Post by Footifanreturns » Mon Nov 02, 2020 1:27 pm

All 40 FA Cup round one ties, including those involving non-elite teams, will be played as planned from 6-9 November.

Elite sports can continue behind closed doors during the four-week lockdown from Thursday but rules on grassroots and amateur sport are to be finalised.

However, the government has confirmed that the 10 non-elite teams left in the FA Cup can play under elite protocols.

So if any non-elite club get through then they won’t be able to play again until the second round. Doesn’t seem fair...

I suppose under the circumstances it is going to tough all around.
It seems as though our elite status does have it's advantages & we can at least get some league games in.
