The Football Association of Wales has welcomed the news communicated by the First Minister at today’s (14 January) Welsh Government Coronavirus Update that restrictions on spectators at sporting events are to be lifted.

The number of people who can attend football matches across Wales will rise from 50 to 500 as and from tomorrow (15 January), with full capacity crowds being allowed from Friday, 21 January as the country continues its return to Alert Level 0.

The JD Cymru Leagues schedule will subsequently resume in full from Friday, 21 January.

Ahead of the 2021/22 season, the FAW factored in COVID-19 related disruptions into its planning with some leagues starting their seasons earlier than normal to counteract such an impact.

In December, the FAW’s National League Board took the decision to suspend the JD Cymru Leagues, Genero Adran Leagues and Ardal Leagues over the festive period due to the restrictions placed upon spectator numbers as a result of the omicron variant of COVID-19. This decision was taken to limit the loss of income for clubs and to provide the best chance for fans not to miss out on supporting their teams. 

Today’s news is therefore pleasing, as fans can now return to supporting domestic football across the country having not missed out on any of the action.

The FAW highlights the importance of people receiving two doses of the COVID-19 vaccination and the booster vaccine. More information on vaccines can be found by visiting the Public Health Wales website.
