FA Contemplates Seeing Out WSL On Neutral GROUNDS
FA considers rounding up women super league on neural venues.The WSL has not seen any games played since late February as a two-week international break preceded the suspension of football in the UK on March 13 due to the coronavirus pandemic, meaning there is a hefty backlog of fixtures to get through.
The FA will continue to listen to government advice on when a restart could be possible, but that does not look likely any time in the next month due to the three-week extension to the lockdown in the UK.
That means a condensed programme at one neutral venue when it is safe to resume could be considered.
An FA spokesperson said in a statement: “We are in the early stages of assessing what options are available for when it is safe and appropriate to resume the FA WSL and FA WC seasons.
“This includes the potential use of neutral venues,pending on the review with the latest Government advice.We are in regular contact with all clubs and the safety and welfare of everybody involved remains our priority.”
Manchester city currently top the women super league table with three points ahead of second place Chelsea who have a game in hand.
