WPWL Action.png

The Football Association of Wales has provided an update in relation to the status of football in Wales following the Welsh Government announcement about the firebreak national lockdown that will be in place from 6:00pm on Friday, 23 October until Monday, 9 November.

The full FAW statement can be read by clicking here.

As a result of the Welsh Government’s announcement on 19 October, the ‘elite programme’ has been suspended. This status allowed the Orchard Welsh Premier Women’s League to continue by following the FAW’s strict return to play protocols with matches being played behind closed doors.

During the firebreak lockdown, all WPWL matches will be postponed and training will not be permitted during this time.

The WPWL joins the FAW in urging everyone to follow the Welsh Government guidelines during the firebreak lockdown to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
