League One clubs to be given two options for vote on season

League One clubs are set to be given two options for an upcoming vote on how to end the 2019/20 season, which could be later this week.

The EFL board met on Wednesday afternoon to discuss a wide range of issues following talks with clubs of all three divisions.

Topics talked about were the restarting of the Championship season, how to deal with League One, and the relegation issue in League Two.

It has been decided that the two options to vote on are points per game and playing all outstanding fixtures.

The desired outcomes were (as mentioned by EFL Zone:
Option A – Season restarts behind closed doors
Option B – Season ends early via PPG with 4 team playoffs
Option C – Season ends early via PPG with top 3 automatically promoted
Option D – Season ends early via PPG with an extended play off format

All 23 League One clubs met via a conference call last week in the hope of coming to a decision on how to end the campaign.

In the end, sides did not come to an agreement, despite League Two clubs unanimous voting to end their league season just hours later, and will meet again later this week

And now it appears that an agreement has still not been reached, and a vote will take place to determine whether or not clubs should aim to complete the current campaign.

Writing on Twitter, John Percy of The Telegraph said: “Latest on League One: will go to a vote on how the season finishes. Promotion/play-offs/relegation decided by PPG (points per game) or complete the games. Vote is likely to be next week.”

The relegation situation in League Two depends on Macclesfield Town. The decision has been halted due to a potential charge the Silkmen could receive.
