Shield to raise curtain on FA Cup final day

The Bermuda Football Association have confirmed the dates for the two end-of-season finals, breaking with tradition with the Friendship and Shield finals taking place on different days.

The two finals are usually held on the same day, but this season they will be played separately, with Dandy Town and Devonshire Cougars playing in the Friendship Trophy final on Wednesday, April 20 at National Sports Centre at 8pm.

The Shield final will this time be held on the same day as the FA Cup final, on Sunday, April 24, also at the National Sports Centre with starting times of 1pm and 3.30pm.

The FA Cup semi-finals are scheduled for next weekend when both Town, the new league champions and Devonshire Cougars will attempt to reach their second end-of-season final, with Town aiming for the Triple Crown.

Town and Cougars will meet at PHC Field on Saturday while the second semi-final between North Village and PHC will take place the following day at Wellington Oval. Both semi-finals will start at 4pm.

This will be the first FA Cup final since 2019 when Robin Hood beat X-Roads 3-2 in the final.

The 2019-2020 and 2020-21 finals were not played because of the Covid-19 pandemic, with the 2019-20 season ending just before the FA Cup final between Robin Hood and North Village could be played.
