English Women's Super League season ended with immediate effect


The English Women's Super League and Championship seasons have both been ended with immediate effect.

Matches in both divisions had been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic and now a decision has been taken not to try to restart.

The FA Board will now rule on how to end the season, which could mean awarding the title on a points per game basis or declaring it null and void.

"Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, the FA Women's Super League and Women's Championship board has been in regular consultation with clubs and key stakeholders from across both leagues to identify the most suitable and appropriate way to conclude the 2019-20 season, and to give clubs and players the clarity and support they need at this time.

"Following overwhelming feedback from the clubs, the decision to bring an end to the 2019-20 season was made in the best interest of the women's game.

"This will also enable clubs, the FA Women's Super League & Women's Championship Board and the FA to plan, prepare and focus on next season when football returns for the 2020-21 campaign.

"Supporting the welfare of the clubs and players will continue to be our primary concern throughout this process, which also involved a robust and thorough examination of the logistical, operational and financial challenges that the game currently faces."
