The Muratti Vase has been cancelled for a second successive year due to Guernsey's COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Muratti Vase has been cancelled due to COVID-19 travel restrictions

The annual tournament, played between Jersey, Guernsey and Alderney was cancelled for the first time last year since World War Two due to the pandemic.


Guernsey's rules require anyone coming to the island to self-isolate for a week, ruling out travel for the game.


Matches at women's and youth levels between Jersey and Guernsey sides have also been cancelled.


"This was a disappointing decision for the committee to take, but the only practical and realistic one that could be taken in light of the circumstances," Jersey Football Association and Inter-Insular Committee president Bradley Vowden said.


"We have left this difficult decision as long as possible in order to provide the players from the Channel Islands the opportunity to play in these historic fixtures.


"However, the timescale for inter-island travel to resume without restrictions remains uncertain, and we have therefore now reached the point whereby it would be too difficult to successfully organise and host the various fixtures before the end of the season on 30 June."
