The Football Association have released a statement confirming that talks with Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship clubs are ongoing regarding whether the season is to be ended.
Both competitions have been suspended since mid-March due to the Coronavirus pandemic while a ball has not been kicked in either division since late February.
Speculation surfaced towards the end of last week that both the Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship could be on the verge of being ended. The Football Association have today released a statement indicating that this is a real possibility, however, talks with all member clubs are ongoing and no final decision has been made at this point.
Should the two competitions be ended, the final standings are likely to be determined on ‘the most appropriate sporting outcome’. This could mean that a points per game system could be implemented. This method would result in Chelsea being named Barclays FA Women’s Super League champions with Manchester City finishing runners-up while Liverpool would be relegated. In the FA Women’s Championship, Aston Villa could be promoted while the five clubs in danger of relegation could be saved with the third tier having already been declared void.
A further update on the situation will be provided by The Football Association in due course.
