THE West Riding County Cup will not be staged if the 2020/21 season starts after September 5.

Clubs completed an online survey voting in favour of the competition going ahead if football does return in three months time.

The West Riding FA issued this statement:

"Given the uncertainty surrounding when football may return, and the desire to support leagues to operate as effectively as possible, the West Riding FA will only run County Cup competitions in season 2020-21, provided the following condition is met:

- Notification is received from the Government/FA by 01/08/2020 that football can resume by 05/09/2020.

- Notification must be received by 1st August 2020 and that notification must confirm that organised football can resume from 5th September 2020.

The cup competitions shall not run if:

- Notification is received after 01/08/2020

- Football is not permitted to resume until after the 5th September 2020

If notification is received by 1st August 2020, and the competitions will run, all clubs will receive an email invitation to enter on August 2nd 2020."
