Earlier today the EFL issued two statements about the status of Sky Bet Championship League One and League Two. This followed a vote at the EFL EGM earlier today. See the statements below.
EFL STATEMENT: LEAGUE ONE OPTS TO CURTAIL
League One Clubs have voted by an overwhelming majority to formally end the 2019/20 season. As a result, the final League standings have now been confirmed meaning that Coventry City have been confirmed as champions with Rotherham United securing the second automatic promotion place to the Championship.
Wycombe Wanderers, Oxford United, Portsmouth and Fleetwood Town will contest the Sky Bet Play-Offs with the schedule to be announced in due course, while Tranmere Rovers, Southend United and Bolton Wanderers will start the 2020/21 season in League Two.
EFL STATEMENT: LEAGUE TWO OPTS TO CURTAIL
League Two Clubs have voted by an overwhelming majority to formally end the 2019/20 season. The division had previously indicated their preference for curtailment but following today’s Extraordinary General Meeting, clubs were required to pass a resolution in accordance with Regulation 9A.
As a result, the final League standings have now been confirmed meaning that Swindon Town have been confirmed as champions with Crewe Alexandra and Plymouth Argyle securing the second and third automatic promotion places to League One. Cheltenham Town, Exeter City, Colchester United and Northampton Town will contest the Sky Bet Play-Offs with the following schedule agreed:
- 1st Legs
Thursday 18th June
Colchester United v Exeter City – 5.15pm
Northampton Town v Cheltenham Town – 7.45pm
- 2nd Legs
Monday 22nd June
Exeter City v Colchester United - 5.15pm
Cheltenham Town v Northampton Town – 8.00pm
- Final (Wembley Stadium)
Monday 29th June 7.30pm
Under the proposals agreed by clubs, the 24th placed club in the League Two will be relegated to the National League provided the Board receives the necessary assurances that the National League will start season 2020/21 (i.e. the relegated club in League Two has somewhere to play). Due to ongoing disciplinary matters, the final placings cannot yet be confirmed.
