On 4th February 2021, the FAW announced that ALL Men's football below TIER 4 and ALL Women's football below TIER 2 would be cancelled for the remainder of 2020-21. The attached document "Decisions of the Board on Return to Play 4-2-21" confirms the announcement and also provides an indication how player, team and referee registration fees for the cancelled season will be dealt with.
The document suggests that referees who have not been able to officiate in competitions will receive a "discount" rather than a full credit for the cost of their fee against 2021-22 registration costs. The implication is that this is due to the cost to the FAW of meeting claims under the FAW "free" insurance policy.
The Secretary of the RAW has written to the FAW querying why the "discount" has been applied and whether any match officials have made a claim under the FAW's policy.
