THE JD Cymru North will kick off in the New Year.

The Football Association of Wales (FAW) confirmed the second tier will be contested over 15 games with each club playing each other once.

Clubs will be scheduled to play eight home matches to be determined by a random draw with promotion and relegation as normal.

Meanwhile the Nathaniel MG Cup will kick off this month, with the first round due to take place on the second weekend of December 2020.

Following confirmation of the JD Cymru North and South being designated ‘elite status’ by Sport Wales last week, the National League Board met on Monday to determine the format of all relevant competitions for the season.

The draw for the First Round will be broadcast tomorrow evening with the games scheduled to be played on the weekend of December 11/12.
