All set for summer football

Created on 14/04/2021 @ 14:28


Football clubs can expect to return to football by the end of July after the Football Association of Wales gave the green light to summer football.

Seasons normally start mid-August, but with Covid-19 cancelling most of the action over the past year, the FAW’s National Leagues Board (NLB) has confirmed the start dates for National Leagues competitions for the 2021/22 season. 

They have stated that the leagues can start earlier due to the likelihood of a third wave of Covid-19 this winter which could again disrupt the season. 

“Therefore, the FAW is looking to maximise the playing opportunities where possible in the 2021/22 season, whilst taking into account the possible threat of further interruptions to competitions,” a spokesperson said.
