Season Termination

The FA and leagues of Steps 3 to 6 of the NLS 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 no promotion or relgation 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 who play at Step 7 of the National League System.

The planned implemention of the restructure of the NLS will be deferred until the start of the 2021/22 Season. The decisions reached by the NLS Leagues will be recommended to the FA Board and FA Council for final ratification.
