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.

International

FIFA have also produced a COVID-19 Football Regulatory Issues report, which focuses on their approach to expiring player contracts, the transfer window and other regulatory matters.

European

Deadlines for entry to 2020/21 UEFA competitions (such as qualifying and player registration) have also been ‘postponed until further notice’ (UEFA)

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.

Fans

We will continue to keep you updated on the myriad questions you might have, whether you’re involved in running your own community-owned club and need guidance and advice on accessing government support, or are an individual fan concerned about your consumer rights regarding pre-booked train tickets, season ticket renewals or anything else.

  • We have a comprehensive run-down of the most frequently asked questions and issues raised with us, which you can see here.
