The current state of the game

With the swirl of stories, proposals and ‘updates’ floating around in the media, it may be hard to remember where we’re actually up to and which decisions have officially been taken by the various governing bodies on the resumption or cancellation of the 2019/20 season. 

To do our part in combatting the information overload and the dreaded ‘fake news’, we’ll collate the various official announcements and latest updates from credible sources on football throughout the UK and Europe as it affects our clubs below.

The information below is up to date as at 10th June.

Domestic

Notwithstanding the links below, the FA Board have agreed that the end of the season ‘be extended indefinitely’, removing the need to complete seasons by 1 June as previously existed under FA rules.

Diversity in action in the national game
