Coronavirus: FA Cup and FA Vase matches postponed after new level restrictions |  Football News

All but one of the FA Women’s Cup matches this weekend have been postponed due to recent changes in government level.

The game between Liverpool Feds and Huddersfield Town is the only game that will take place, with the rest to be rescheduled for a later date.

An FA statement said: “This week the government announced new Covid-19 regulations across the UK, with the majority of the country now under Level 4 restrictions.

“As a result, all but one of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup second round matches will be postponed and rearranged for a later date. Liverpool Feds vs Huddersfield Town will go as planned.

“We are working with the government to find a way to reschedule these Vitality Women’s FA Cup matches at the earliest opportunity, while ensuring that our priority is to keep our players, officials and everyone involved safe on a match day.

All FA Vase matches scheduled for Jan. 9 have also been postponed, with the FA citing the changes to the Level 4 restrictions as the cause.

Sixteen fourth-round matches were due to be played by that date, but those matches – along with the remaining matches from the third round – will now have to be postponed.
