EFL choose PPG finish

At an Extraordinary General Meeting on Tuesday 9 June, English Football League Clubs voted on proposals in respect of changes to EFL Regulations in the event season 2019/20 is curtailed.

League One Clubs have voted by an overwhelming majority to formally end the 2019/20 season.

As a result, the final League standings have now been decided by Points Per Game meaning that Coventry City have been confirmed as Champions with Rotherham United securing the second automatic promotion place to the Championship.

Wycombe Wanderers, Oxford United, Portsmouth and Fleetwood Town will contest the Sky Bet Play-Offs with the schedule to be announced in due course, while Tranmere Rovers, Southend United and Bolton Wanderers will start the 2020/21 season in League Two.

League Two Clubs have also voted by an overwhelming majority to formally end the 2019/20 season.

As a result the final League standings have now been confirmed by Points Per Game meaning that Swindon Town have been confirmed as Champions with Crewe Alexandra and Plymouth Argyle securing the second and third automatic promotion places to League One.

Cheltenham Town, Exeter City, Colchester United and Northampton Town will contest the Sky Bet Play-Offs with the following schedule agreed:

1st Legs
Thursday 18th June

Colchester United v Exeter City – 5.15pm

Northampton Town v Cheltenham Town – 7.45pm

2nd Legs
Monday 22nd June

Exeter City v Colchester United – 5.15pm

Cheltenham Town v Northampton Town – 8.00pm

Final (Wembley Stadium)

Under the proposals agreed by Clubs, the 24th placed Club in the League Two will be relegated to the National League provided the Board receives the necessary assurances that the National League will start Season 2020/21 (i.e. the relegated Club in League Two has somewhere to play). Due to ongoing disciplinary matters, the final placings cannot yet be confirmed.

The National League will meet on Wednesday to decide the outcome of their own Divisions.

At steps 3 to 6 the season was declared null and void with all results expunged by the FA Council.
