English League One and League two 2019/2020 has been officially cancelled today.
The English Football League (EFL) has been suspended since March due to COVID-19 ended abruptly today after teams from League One and Two unanimously voted curtail the season and judge the season by the points per game (PPG) method.
In a statement released by the EFL chairman Rick Parry said:
“Whilst it has always remained the board’s position to play the remainder of the season where possible, the decision reached at today’s meeting follows a full and considered consultation period with our member clubs.
“The board has endeavoured to listen to all views and alternative approaches but understands that the decisions taken will not be met with universal satisfaction from all clubs.
“Today’s outcome ensures that the League and its clubs remains as faithful as possible to the previously agreed regulations and that there is consistency in the approach adopted across the EFL in all divisions if required.
“It is clear that the challenges facing the League from the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic are unprecedented and I thank the contribution of EFL clubs in making this important determination.”
With the points per game system to be used to determine promotion, play-offs and relegation, from League One, table toppers Coventry City are champions and will be joined by Rotherham United as both are automatically promoted to the Championship.
The quartet of Wycombe Wanderers, Fleetwood Town, Portsmouth and Oxford United will do battle in the playoffs in a yet to be determined date.
Relegated to League Two are Tranmere Rovers, Southend United and Bolton Wanderers.
In League Two, Swindon Town are champions hence gaining promotion to League One alongside Crewe Alexandra and Plymouth Argyle while play-offs will see Cheltenham Town take on Northampton Town while Exeter City battle Colchester United. Confirmed for relegation is Stevenage.
