League One and Two season ‘could be cancelled as early as next week’

The League One and Two season ‘could be cancelled as early as next week’ according to reports from the Telegraph on Wednesday.

The EFL are set to meet next Thursday, and the prospect of cancelling the two divisions’ seasons will be raised and then potentially voted on by clubs.

The report says the EFL has already widespread opinion among clubs and has found an overwhelming desire to call the season now, with as few as three League One clubs keen to complete the remaining schedule.

Any vote to cancel the season at this stage would require a majority of 75%. It also looks like the majority in League Two want to end it now.

There is still talks on whether play-offs would be staged later in the summer if the remaining games are cancelled – however it looks more likely that promotion and relegation will go ahead based on points-per-game average.

A study has found that it will cost clubs at least £700,000 to stage their remaining games with no way of clubs getting back that sort of money, especially if they are played behind closed doors.

EFL chairman Rick Parry has urged the government to make a quick decision, suggesting that the campaign had to be completed by the 31st of July 31 due to the contract issues of players.
