EFL Statement Confirms Tuesday EGM
Wednesday, 3rd Jun 2020 18:13

The EFL has issued a statement its board having met earlier today to consider proposals on how the 2019/20 season might be ended early and has confirmed that the clubs will meet next Tuesday, not Monday as initially planned.

The statement reads: “The EFL board met today and considered a number of proposals submitted by EFL clubs in respect of proposed amendments to EFL regulations in order to determine what will happen in the event the 2019/20 season is curtailed in any EFL division.

“This now brings an end to a comprehensive consultation phase and clubs have today received formal notice of the meeting which will now take place on Tuesday 9th June 2020.

At that meeting clubs will consider a number of different proposals from both clubs and the board of the EFL.”

While the Championship is expected to return to action with the resumption of its season pencilled in for June 20th, League Two sides recently held an indicative vote which will see their campaign end early.

League One clubs are split but with those favouring curtailing the season understood to number more than the 51 per cent required to carry the vote. That being the case, settling placings, relegation and promotion on unweighted points per game is the EFL’s preferred solution.

Among the amendments submitted by clubs was Tranmere’s points per game with a margin of error proposal.

Surely this board should be held accountable for unnecessarily dragging their heals.

It is affecting clubs in a manner of ways including season ticket sales for next season. Not to mention some fans who have been financially affected by this and are awaiting to be reimbursed for the games that won’t be played ( if that is the case ).

Staff of the football clubs from players to those just employed on match days now do not know the status of their employment in some cases which is no good them or their families. A very worrying time and whilst the EFL is not to blame for covid-19 disrupting football. They have certainly not done enough to get the situation in hand and they are accountable for their poor handling of this and I hope the clubs are able to hold this board accountable somehow. Not only for the clubs themselves but also for the staff and their fans.
