Football Association put FA Vase ties on hold

Thursday 31st December 2020

The Football Association has issued the following statement:


“Following the Government's latest announcement regarding updated COVID-19 restriction tiers, we have issued an update regarding this season's Buildbase FA Vase. 

With over 75 per cent of the population under Tier Four restrictions, currently all Buildbase FA Vase fourth-round fixtures scheduled for Saturday 9 January 2021 – and the remaining outstanding third-round matches – will be unable to take place, in line with the latest Government guidance. These fixtures shall therefore be postponed with a new date to be confirmed.

We will continue working closely with the relevant parties to ensure these fixtures can be rescheduled as soon as it is safe to do so.

For a reminder of our current guidance for 'non-elite' football activity, click here.”

Deal Town – Kent’s last surviving side left in the competition – still have got to play Binfield at home, with the winners travelling to play Fakenham Town in the Fourth Round.
