The FA and leagues at Steps 3 to 6 have reached a consensus that the 2019/20 season for Steps 3 to 6 will be ended with immediate effect and all results will be expunged.
This will mean that there will be no promotion or relegation of clubs between Steps 3 to 6, or relegation from Step 2.
In light of the above, these decisions will also apply to the leagues and clubs at Step 7 of the National League System.
The FA will continue to assist and support the National League to determine the outcome of the 2019/20 season.
The planned implementation of the restructure of the NLS will also now be deferred until the start of the 2021/22 season. Furthermore, The FA has decided that all grassroots football is concluded for the 2019/20 season.
With the Emirates FA Cup, Women’s FA Cup, Buildbase FA Trophy and Buildbase FA Vase 2019/20 all at advanced stages, The FA is reviewing all options as they seek to complete these competitions whenever it is safe and appropriate to do so. Clubs involved are close to reaching a major final and for those clubs and supporters, The FA ‘will do all we can to keep the Wembley dream alive.’
