The FA Council has ratified the decision taken in March to conclude the 2019/20 season.
It affects all competitions from Steps 3 to 7 of the National League System including the Toolstation NCEL, Tiers 3 to 7 of the women’s football pyramid and the wider grassroots game.
Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, The FA has been working collaboratively with the leagues within the National League System, the Women’s Football Board, the Women’s Football Conference, and the wider grassroots game to identify the most appropriate way to conclude the 2019/20 season at each level.
The request to end the 2019/20 season was taken to The FA Council by the representatives of the relevant committees having been fully supported by The FA Board. (More information here.)
The FA Council’s vote today was overwhelmingly in favour of ratifying the decision.
It means that all results in the 2019/20 Toolstation NCEL season will be expunged and there will be no promotion or relegation.
