The draws for the first two qualifying rounds of the 2020-21 Buildbase FA Trophy and Buildbase FA Vase have been released.

A total of 34 sides will enter the Trophy in the first round qualifying on Saturday 26 September, with the winners joining a further 105 teams in the second round qualifying on Saturday 17 October.

The Vase will kick off on Saturday 19 September with the first round qualifying as no less than 442 teams compete for a place in the second round qualifying on Saturday 10 October, when a further 109 sides join the competition.

A full list of round dates for the 2020-21 Buildbase FA Trophy can be found here, while the schedule for the Buildbase FA Vase is here.

The two competitions will conclude at Wembley Stadium with Non-League Finals Day scheduled for Saturday 8 May 2021.

With last season's Trophy and Vase campaigns still on hold at the quarter-final stage following the outbreak of COVID-19 in March, we are currently exploring options with the relevant parties to complete the 2019-20 competitions, providing it is feasible to do so.
