The FA have confirmed that it has received approval to conclude the last three rounds of the 2019/20 Women’s FA Cup in the early part of next season.

The semi-finals will follow the same week, on September 30/October 1, and the final will take place at Wembley Stadium on October 31.

Arsenal reached the last eight of the tournament after seeing off West Ham United and Lewes, as Lia Wälti scored her first goal for the Gunners in a 2-0 win against the Hammers in January and Caitlin Foord’s debut goal marked a 2-0 home win over Lewes.
