12 January 2021

The FA has confirmed that the FA Youth Cup will be suspended until further notice following discussions with the Government's Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport.

In a statement issued by the FA, they said:

"The FA can confirm its decision to temporarily suspend the 2020/21 FA Youth Cup and has discussed this with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport.

"The health and wellbeing of players and staff are of paramount importance and The FA intends to resume the national competition once the UK Government’s current national COVID-19 lockdown concludes and it is deemed safer for clubs to travel.

"The FA Youth Participation & Development Committee, which is responsible for management of the competition, will continue to review the situation and The FA will provide further updates at the earliest opportunity.

"For the avoidance of doubt, all matches in The FA Youth Cup are now suspended with immediate effect until further notice."

Any updates on the FA Youth Cup's restart will be issued accordingly.
