FA Cup set to return on June 27

London, May 29 (Xinhua) The Football Association (FA) has agreed on Friday that the 2019-2020 FA Cup will provisionally restart on June 27 with the final scheduled to be played on August 1.

All elite football games in England have been suspended since March 13 due to the coronavirus outbreak. On Thursday, the Premier League agreed on a provisional date of return on June 17.

Following the announcement of the Premier League, the FA decided to stage the FA Cup quarterfinals over the weekend of June 27 and 28. The semifinals will take place across the weekend of July 18 and 19, with the final on August 1.

"The competition has been an integral part of the English football calendar for nearly 150 years, and we'd like to thank the Premier League executive and clubs for their support in scheduling the remaining matches during this unprecedented time," said FA chief executive officer Mark Bullingham.
"This has been a difficult period for many people and, while this is a positive step, the restart date is dependent on all safety measures being met. The health and wellbeing of players, staff and supporters remains our priority."

This season's FA quarterfinals will see Leicester City take on Chelsea, Newcastle United versus Manchester City, Sheffield United play Arsenal and Norwich City go up against Manchester United.

The FA will announce venues and timings for the competition at a later date.

The 20 top-flight clubs have been allowed to start small-group, non-contact training from last Tuesday and got permission to resume contact training on Wednesday.
