FA Cup replays will return up to and including the fourth round for the upcoming season.

Replays – traditionally a big earner for lower-league and non-league clubs alike – were scrapped for the 2020-21 season, which was heavily condensed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the FA has announced that they will be back for four rounds of the soon-to-start season's competition.

It is another step towards a more traditional domestic football calendar after the EFL confirmed on Tuesday the Carabao Cup semi-finals would revert to being played over two legs.
