THE Football Association of Wales has taken the decision to suspend domestic football at all levels in Wales with immediate effect until April 4 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

An FAW statement reads: "The intention at this time will be to resume the football schedule depending on the medical advice and conditions from the relevant authorities at that time.

"The FAW is fully aware of the impact this will have on the domestic game but the health and safety of all fans, players, volunteers and stakeholders are of paramount importance," it continued.

"The FAW will continue to monitor this situation on a day-by-day basis and will continue to provide updates when appropriate."

The FAW has also announce that the upcoming friendly match against Austria on March 27 at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

They say the decision was made "in light of recent developments, with the aim of putting the health and safety of all fans, players and stakeholders first and foremost."

South Wales Argus:

It follows the cancellation of the friendly against the USA, which was scheduled for March 30 in Cardiff, earlier this week.

All those who have booked tickets will receive a full refund for the face value.

Refunds will be processed over the next 14 working days and will be returned to each customer via the same method of payment as the original booking.

For those who purchased via cash or cheque, they will be refunded via bank transfer.

Card refunds will be processed back to the credit or debit card used for the booking. If this card has expired, the purchaser will be contacted by a member of the ticketing team.

Tickets already received will be void and cannot be used for any future match.

The postponements mean Ryan Giggs' side have only one friendly, away to the Netherlands in Rotterdam on June 6, scheduled before their first Euro 2020 fixture against Switzerland in Baku on June 13.

But Euro 2020 may well be postponed by 12 months to the summer of 2021 at next Tuesday's meeting of European governing body UEFA.
