Next season's FA Cup, Carabao Cup could be axed

The Coronavirus outbreak has thrown the football world into a doldrum and might cause a ripple effect that could spill into next season. 

Major leagues across Europe have been postponed, and there is no particular date that action will resume despite the provision of tentative dates. 

According to the Sun, the fixture pile-up that is expected as a result of the postponement of major leagues might force authorities to cancel next season's FA Cup and the Carabao Cup competitions.

The season is still hanging with no solution as to how the remainder of the season will be handled, but Premier League clubs are planning a meeting next week that will resolve this.

One of the topics on the agenda is the fate of the two cup competitions with the aim of creating room for more Premier League fixtures. 

Some of the suggestions that have been put forward include playing the remaining matches behind closed doors, in order to ensure all matches are played and the season does not end prematurely. 

So far the EURO 2020 has been pushed to 2021 to give enough room to other European leagues to complete scheduled matches.
