Both competitions have been suspended since mid-March as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Football Association have been locked in talks with the 23 member clubs in recent weeks to discuss options on how to take the current campaign forward and it has now been determined that the season will be terminated with immediate effect.

A proposal has been put to The FA Board on how the final standings of both competitions will be determined. This will be on a basis which rewards clubs based on sporting merit and The Football Association will provide further details on this matter in due course.

It is has been confirmed that the proposal will include a consideration for 2020/2021 UEFA Women’s Champions League qualification, however, no reference in The Football Association’s statement has been made to relegation from or promotion to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League.
