Championship and League 1 wait on season resumption

Championship and League 1 clubs are waiting on whether or not their respective seasons will resume in 2020.

The Championship and League 1 clubs held a scheduled forum via video conference on Thursday, which was conducted by RFL chair Simon Johnson.

The clubs discussed a range of issues, with the main topic of discussion to consider options for the 2020 season following its suspension on March 16.

Reports from the two working groups that had been set up at the last forum in mid-May were presented – one on cost and logistics – and the other on revenue opportunities.

An RFL statement read: “A range of views were expressed by clubs, both on the issues involved – now involving the possible return of crowds to sport later in the year – and on when a decision should be made regarding the 2020 season.

“The clubs will now be invited to present their views formally via a survey, and those views will be carried forward to the next RFL board meeting on July 6.

“Clubs also considered a presentation on recommendations from the RFL Laws Committee meeting earlier this month, focusing on the reasons for changes recommended for the 2020 season – which will also be carried forward to the July RFL board meeting.”
