Oxfordshire FA County Cups - Covid-19 Update (16 March 2020)

A statement from Oxfordshire FA CEO, Ian Mason, regarding County Cup competitions in relation to coronavirus.

“After much deliberation and discussion, Oxfordshire FA have today taken the decision to suspend all County Cup competitions until 5 May 2020.

Given the uncertainty around coronavirus and continual changing picture, it was felt that this was the only viable action to take, with the best interests of our clubs, players, match officials and spectators at heart.

As a result of this decision, all scheduled remaining County Cup semi-finals and finals will NOT be played as planned. Full-Time notification emails will be issued shortly, updating fixture dates ‘TBA’.

We would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but we feel it is the right decision to make at this stage.

We will continue to monitor the situation and hope to have more clarity regarding timescales once May arrives. It will be at that point, and not before, that we will consider what will happen to competitions.”
