    Written by on July 21, 2021

    Falkirk’s game against Edinburgh City has been called off – after a number of players and staff tested positive for coronavirus.

    The Bairns have been forced to concede tonight’s game.

    In a statement, the club said:

    “Following a number of positive COVID test results received today, Falkirk Football Club has informed the SPFL that we are unable to fulfil this evening’s Premier Sports Cup fixture against Edinburgh City. As a result, Edinburgh City have been awarded a 3-0 win.

    We continue to liaise with the authorities regarding future fixtures, however as a precaution all Falkirk Football Club staff have been sent home.

    Our priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our players and staff and we will keep supporters updated as matters develop.

    Edinburgh City have confirmed that all supporters who have purchased a match ticket or live stream will be refunded automatically.”
