The Women’s FA Cup will resume in late March after its suspension in the New Year. With the new lockdown restrictions in England leading to the suspension of “non-elite” football, most of the early round ties were unable to be played. The FA has now announced that the competition will resume from the 3rd Round on 31st March.
Arsenal enter the competition on the 4th round, which will be played on Sunday, 18th April and the Gunners have been drawn at home to one of Cheltenham Town, Portsmouth, Crawley Wasps or Gillingham. The 5th round, quarter-final, semi-final and final ties will be played at the beginning of next season, with dates to be announced.
Something similar happened at the start of this season, with the 2019-20 FA Cup picking up from the quarter-final stage in September with the final played at the end of October. Arsenal have won the competition a record 14 times and last lifted the trophy in 2016.
We are pleased to confirm that the 2020-2021 competition will recommence at the end of this month. Full details 👇
