Following the recent announcement which brought Steps 3-6 of the Men’s National League System, Tiers 3-7 of the Women’s Football Pyramid, and grassroots football to an immediate conclusion, we have decided to cancel this year’s FA Disability Cup, which was scheduled to take place over 25-26 July 2020.
These are challenging circumstances for the whole of English football and all decisions taken are in the best interests of the game. Our primary concern will always be for the safety and welfare of clubs, players, staff, officials, volunteers and supporters during this unprecedented time.
The FA Disability Cup is the largest competition of its kind in this country, and for the past four years it has ensured that players within impairment-specific football have a national competition to call their own, complete with dreams of reaching St George’s Park for the finals weekend.
We look forward to hosting the FA Disability Cup again in 2021 when it is hopefully safe and appropriate to do so.
