All football in England below the three divisions that make up the National League will end immediately and all results will be expunged.

It means there will be no promotion or relegation in these divisions.

The same will happen in the women's game below the Women's Super League and Championship level.

However, the National League, National League North and South, WSL and Women's Championship will continue towards a conclusion "as quickly as possible".

"These are challenging circumstances for English football and all decisions taken are in the best interests of the game," said a Football Association statement.

"Our primary concern will always be for the safety and welfare of clubs, players, staff, officials, volunteers and supporters during this unprecedented time.

"Today's steps take into account the financial impact during this uncertain period, whilst considering the fairest method on how the sporting outcomes for the season will be decided, with the integrity of the leagues in mind."

The decision applies to steps three to seven in men's non-league football, while all "grassroots" divisions below these tiers have also finished. It has still yet to be decided whether these seasons are to be voided.

In women's football, tiers three to seven have also ended.

FA DECISION ON NON LEAGUE

It’s been announced this afternoon that non leader steps 3 to 6 the season has ended and the season declared null and void

Could this be an indicator as to what may happen higher up the pyramid?

I am sure whatever the outcome many will be unhappy

Setting the expectations and groundwork for this to be rolled out across senior (elite) football as well, I reckon.

I've got an idea, when the new season starts again in August, at the end of it, the top 3 can go up, and the bottom three can go down!

If you listen closely, you can hear the first calls of “It Ay Fair” coming from Sandwell.

My local team, Vauxall Motors have had their season declared null and void despite gaining promotion a few weeks ago. I'd be fine about this as long as the same applies to the Premier/Football League.

Newcastle manager Steve Bruce has called for a ‘Festival of Football’ with games every day to help get the season completed when it is safe to play again following the coronavirus pandemic.

We have to try and get this season finished, whatever that takes, everybody wants that – but we must also remember that the health and safety of players and staff is far more important than football,” Bruce said in an interview with The Telegraph.

“We should not return to training until it is absolutely safe to do so.

“We can have a ‘Festival of Football’ month, games every day, teams playing two or three games a week.

“It is not ideal, but if we can play 10 to 15 games in December and the start of January, we can do it to get this season finished.

“It probably means the start of next season will be delayed, we will probably have to scrap one of the cup competitions and do without a winter break, but it can be done.

“Whatever, however, we will find a way.”

"Steve Bruce" and "festival of football" in the same sentence. We are living in strange times.

Alex Butler as well https://twitter.com/han_baggie/status/1242405439700074496

Recognise his face from shots of him coming in with the team on matchdays. Can also remember him being in the away end at the sty and celebrating Jack's goal.

What's his role in the club again. Worrying that he hasn't just got a mild form of this.
He is the Club Masseur, direct contact with the players I think

From fb re big al.

Hi everyone I have a message from Alex Butler mom.
 "Al is doing fantastically well and we believe he is now over the worst"
He is however bored as theres no TVs on AMU 😂 ..... HE MUST BE BETTER ...... so glad your nearly over it mate!! Keep going ......we were all praying for you!!

Steve, old dead Potato, sorry to interrupt your bullshitting again but we don't play 10-15 games in December and the start of January, we played 8.

Fucking idiot.

The Season will be null and void for this reason: can you guarantee that every club will be virus free for something like 100+ games? That includes players, management, family etc.,
Let's face it, it only took illness to Arteta and Hudson-Odoi to completely derail the Premier League only a few weeks ago when the virus was at a lower level.
