EFL STATEMENT: SKY BET LEAGUE TWO SEASON CURTAILED

9 June 2020

Sky Bet 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 respective automatic promotion places to Sky Bet League One.

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

First Legs:
Thursday 18th June
Colchester United v Exeter City - 5.15pm
Northampton Town v Cheltenham Town - 7.45pm

Second 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 Sky Bet League Two will be relegated to the Vanarama National League - provided the board receives the necessary assurances that the Vanarama National League will start season 2020/21 (i.e. the relegated club in Sky Bet League Two has somewhere to play).

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