- The domestic cup competition has been on hold as well due to the global pandemic

The FA Cup final has been scheduled for Saturday, August 8 and will be the last game of the season.
The FA Cup was heading to the last 16 round when football was brought to a halt due to the global coronavirus pandemic.
The plan is in line with Premier League’s Project Restart that is set to have games resuming which will allow the league’s football calendar to end.
The FA will act in concert with the Premier League and only start competitions if the Government deem it safe with more talks expected with the deputy chief medical officer Jonathan Van-Tam this week.
The Premier League required flexibility from the national federations and UEFA to cancel Euro 2020 to allow the possibility of finishing domestic leagues.
However, the FA faces a huge financial black hole with no major events now scheduled this summer.
The teams still in the competition are the holder’s Manchester City that is to take on Newcastle, Chelsea was drawn against Leicester City, Arsenal face Sheffield United while Manchester United will lock horns with Norwich City.
