Major changes are coming to the domestic cup competitions in the wake of the delayed start to the 2020/21 season.

There will be no replays throughout the 2020/21 FA Cup tournament, with all the games decided on a one-off basis.

The final is on 15 May 2021 but with a reduced prize money.

The Football Association commented:

After two seasons of record levels of prize funds, the Emirates FA Cup prize fund has returned back in line with 2017/18 levels due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Carabao Cup has replaced two-legged semi-finals with single ties at the home of the first club drawn out, and the first four rounds will now take place in consecutive weeks, kicking off in early September and finals in February.
