NCA Clubs Cup Competition 2020/21
- Thursday 5th November 2020
Announcement from the National Clubs Association
The RFU announced on Friday that the leagues for this season would be cancelled.
The RFU Competitions Team is working with the Competitions Organising Committees for Men and Women to finalise alternative competition models in place of the cancelled 20/21 league programme.
In terms of the National Leagues, the NCA are proposing something along the lines of the Bob Willis Cup which was successful in county cricket.
At level 3 and 4, they are looking at regional leagues – to limit the amount of travel for clubs – which would then move into a national knockout with the potential of a grand finale at Twickenham. Entry will also be optional with no obligation on clubs to participate and no consequences for deciding not to do so.
The NCA intend to circulate these proposals, inviting clubs to participate, on 13th November 2020.
