Reports of League One decision delayed further…
The EFL’s meeting on Wednesday has reportedly failed to reach a conclusion and the decision whether to end the League One season has been further delayed.
That is according to The Guardian, who understand clubs are being sent a series of options on how to conclude the season with Thursday’s vote now delayed, with an outcome potentially not being reached until Monday 8th June.
The original framework outlined by the EFL was to either continue the season behind closed doors or bring an early end with the table being determined by a points-per-game calculation, with promotion, play-offs and relegation being decided.
However, The Guardian now believe that clubs will be given a series of options on how to decide the season. These include whether to play on, opt to decide promotion and relegation on a points-per-game basis, potentially void relegation and, possibly, stage expanded play-offs, something which was previously dismissed at the latest meeting.
One vote which has gone according to plan is the new regulation that the majority vote is now only 51 per cent, as opposed to 75, that is required for the establishment of a new framework.
Clubs will be allowed five working days to consider their voting position, Monday 8th June will considerably reduce the potential to conclude the season on the pitch with the deadline of July 31st looming large.
