At an Extraordinary General Meeting on Tuesday 9 June, EFL Clubs voted on proposals in respect of changes to EFL Regulations in the event season 2019/20 is curtailed.
Proposals were submitted by Barnsley and Tranmere Rovers alongside amendments to an EFL Board proposal which were put forward by Lincoln City, Stevenage and Ipswich Town.
Following a vote on each by all 71 Clubs, it was overwhelmingly agreed (by a majority of all Clubs and a majority in the Championship) to adopt the EFL Board’s proposal into EFL Regulations, which now means the following applies in the event a division curtails its 2019/20 season or it is ended by any other means.
Final divisional placings will be determined on unweighted points per game (if required).
Promotion and relegation should be retained.
Play-Offs will be played in all circumstances but will not be extended (beyond four teams).
Clubs in Leagues One and Two will now meet by division later today to formally determine whether to resume playing the 2019/20 season or opt for curtailment. The Championship Clubs restart their season on 20 June.
EFL Chair, Rick Parry, said: “Whilst it has always remained the Board’s position to play the remainder of the season where possible, the decision reached at today’s meeting follows a full and considered consultation period with our member Clubs. The Board has endeavoured to listen to all views and alternative approaches but understands that the decisions taken will not be met with universal satisfaction from all Clubs.
“Today’s outcome ensures that the League and its Clubs remains as faithful as possible to the previously agreed Regulations and that there is consistency in the approach adopted across the EFL in all divisions if required.
“It is clear that the challenges facing the League from the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic are unprecedented and I thank the contribution of EFL Clubs in making this important determination.”

The big question now is how will this affect crowds in the future. No more football this season then div one next season with no guarantee that fans will be able to attend. Of course the die hard base will always return but how big is that base?

Chief Executive Officer Jim Rodwell has expressed his disappointment following today’s announcement to end the 2019-20 Sky Bet League One season.
Sunderland AFC were just three points adrift of second place when the footballing calendar was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, but today’s vote confirmed the Black Cats will end the season in eighth.
Missing out on the opportunity to play for promotion is a bitter pill to swallow for all associated with the club, including the players, staff and supporters.
But regardless of the extraordinary circumstances that led to today’s outcome, Rodwell admits the club must perform at a higher level - on and off the pitch - to ensure success is delivered during the 2020-21 season.
“Although we braced ourselves for today’s decision, we are incredibly disappointed by the outcome,” he explained.
“We were committed to finishing the season on the pitch and we made our stance perfectly clear throughout what has been an incredibly challenging period for every club within the EFL.”
He continued: “Ultimately, we now have to move forward.
“Our fans have been magnificent, and we know how much they, like the players and staff, will be hurting today. But it’s our supporters who have the set the standard over the last two seasons, following the team home and away in incredible numbers, and we have failed to match them.
“As a club, we have to strive to be better and ensure we learn from the mistakes we have made because regardless of the circumstances, finishing eighth in League One isn’t good enough and I don’t think anyone would tell you otherwise.
“Our sole focus moving forward must be to build a squad that is capable of winning this division next season. I have spoken to Phil Parkinson at length and we have a very clear idea of what we need to achieve that goal.
“It is our responsibility to put that plan into action immediately and ensure that whenever the 2020-21 season begins, we are ready.”

It will be interesting what the league will look like for the new season. A couple of sides might end up like Bury had done.

I will return when I can but not buying a season ticket until I know I can attend games. Disappointed to be playing in this league again but going to watch Sunderland has always been more than just the football and the league we're in, it's a bond between me and my son.

4 teams voted against finishing the season playing behind closed doors. Quite happy to play behind closed doors to try and get promotion though.

Yeah my point exactly 
Wycombe for example there would not play 
However ohhhhh we will play in the play offs 
If it was good enough for play offs the games should of been played 
How are there going to play the on coming season if they didn’t want to finish this one 
What will have changed ?????????????

Not great for us but a club voting in their own interests - no surprise.
