EFL: League Two opts to curtail season 19/20

Final decision made

9 June 2020

League Two clubs have voted by an overwhelming majority to formally end the 2019/20 season.

The division had previously indicated their preference for curtailment but following today’s Extraordinary General Meeting, clubs were required to pass a resolution in accordance with Regulation 9A.

As a result, the final League standings have now been confirmed meaning that Swindon Town have been confirmed as Champions with Crewe Alexandra and Plymouth Argyle securing the second and third automatic promotion places to League One.


Cheltenham Town, Exeter City, Colchester United and Northampton Town will contest the Sky Bet Play-Offs with the following schedule agreed:

• 1st Legs
Thursday 18th June
Colchester United v Exeter City – 5.15pm
Northampton Town v Cheltenham Town – 7.45pm

• 2nd Legs
Monday 22nd June
Exeter City v Colchester United - 5.15pm
Cheltenham Town v Northampton Town – 8.00pm

• Final (Wembley Stadium)
Monday 29th June 7.30pm

Under the proposals agreed by clubs, the 24th placed club in the League Two will be relegated to the National League provided the Board receives the necessary assurances that the National League will start Season 2020/21 (i.e. the relegated club in League Two has somewhere to play).

Due to ongoing disciplinary matters, the final placings cannot yet be confirmed.

United's chief executive Nigel Clibbens said: “At the EFL League Two meeting this afternoon, the season was officially brought to an end.

"We previously indicated we backed this approach when it was first debated and unanimously supported by all League Two clubs a few weeks ago.

"Again we supported the proposal today, so we are pleased to finally have certainty over the remaining games of the 19/20 season.

We have already commenced the process of dealing with fan season ticket refunds and we again appeal to fans to get in touch (complete the season ticket survey HERE).

"Our commercial staff are also contacting our commercial supporters too as we look to deal with the consequences.

"Not finishing the season is extraordinary, but at least we can now start to focus on next season.

"Next for us is the reopening of the Blues Store, which we have taken steps towards with the opening of our online shop service.

"More announcements will be made shortlyon the way forward, so watch this space."
