The FA Council has now ratified the decision of the alliance and leagues committees that the 2020-21 league season for steps three to six of the National League System should be curtailed with immediate effect.
This confirms that no further league matches will be played in this current season.
As previously reported a few weeks ago, the FA’s Alliance and Leagues Committees considered the large amount of data and information submitted by clubs across the National League System (NLS) Steps 3-6 as part of a survey to gather views on the continuation or conclusion of the 2020-21 league season, in addition to the information set out in the Government’s roadmap.
Taking into account the survey results and the ongoing impact of Covid-19, which continues to adversely affect incomes for clubs due to restrictions on both spectators and hospitality, The FA’s Alliance and Leagues Committees reached a consensus that the 2020- 21 league season for Steps 3-6 of the NLS should be curtailed with immediate effect, with no further league matches taking place this season.
