FA Announcement - March 26th

Football Association

The season ends.

From the Isthmian League website:

Each of the Leagues in the Non-League system has just been sent a statement from the FA which outlines how the season will end. You will find the main points of this decision below:

As a result, the FA and the Leagues at Steps 3 to 6 of the NLS have therefore reached a consensus that the 2019-20 season for Steps 3 to 6 will be ended with immediate effect and all results will be expunged. This will mean no promotion or relegation of clubs between Steps 3 to 6, or relegation from Step 2.

In light of the above, these decisions will also apply to the Leagues and Clubs who play at Step 7 of the National League System.

The FA will continue to assist and support the National League (Steps 1 and 2 of the NLS) to determine the outcome of its 19-20 season as quickly as possible.

The planned implementation of the restructure of the NLS will be deferred until the start of the 2021-22 season. The decisions reached by the NLS leagues will be recommended to the FA Board and FA Council for final ratification.
