FAW Statement: Threat of legal action

The FAW is disappointed by the threat of legal action from our Member Club The New Saints FC and we will be responding to the Club in due course.

The FAW did consult with its Clubs and conducted a fair and robust process, evaluating options and discussing in both the National League Board and FAW Board of Directors before coming to final decisions in relation to the curtailment of the 2019/20 Cymru Premier.  

Subsequent to the FAW’s letter to UEFA by the deadline of Monday 25 May, the Association has already received a response from UEFA which states: “it appears that the criteria applied for the selection of the clubs that will be proposed to represent your association in the 2020/21 UEFA club competitions would be in line with the principles set out in the [UEFA] Guidelines.”
