The FA and the leagues from step 3 to 6 of the non league football system have reached a consensus that the 2019/20 season will be ended with immediate effect and all results will be expunged.

This will mean no promotion or relegation of clubs between step 3 and 6 or relegation from step 2 as a result.

In light of the above, these decisions will also apply to the leagues and clubs who play at step 7 in the non league system.

The FA will continue to assist and support the National League (steps 1 and 2 of NLS) to determine the outcome of its 2019/20 season as quickly as possible.

The planned implementation of the restructure of the NLS will be deferred until the start of the 2021/22 season.

The decisions reached by NLS will be recommended to the FA Board and FA Council for final ratification.
