Women’s 2020/21 FA Cup set to return and details of fourth-round draw

The competition was paused in January due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19 in England, but the FA confirmed on Thursday that the tournament will resume from late March.

In a statement, the FA said: “We are pleased to confirm that following the Government’s recent roadmap announcement which will see the safe return of grassroots football from 29 March, the 2020-21 Vitality Women’s FA Cup will recommence at the end of this month.
“The competition was paused in January at the second round after the country went into its third lockdown, with all ‘non-elite’ football suspended as a result.  
“With the recent announcement that the suspension will be lifted in a few weeks, we’re now in a position to reschedule the first four rounds of the competition – with one tie still to be played in the first round proper and 17 in the second round proper, before the third and fourth rounds can be played.”
