The Football Association has declared all non-league divisions from steps three to six of the football pyramid null and void, as well as tiers three to seven of the women's league, after all divisions were postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

In a statement released on the FA website, it was confirmed that both the National League System and the women's football pyramid had reached a consensus to bring the 19/20 season to an end and have all results expunged.

This means that there will be no promotion or relegation of clubs between NLS steps three to six, and no promotion to NLS step two.

There will also be no promotion or relegation of clubs between the affected women's divisions.

The FA statement said: "We have been working collaboratively with the National League System (NLS), the women’s football pyramid and the wider grassroots game since the outbreak of COVID-19 on how to conclude the 2019-20 season in the most appropriate way possible.

"These are challenging circumstances for English football and all decisions taken are in the best interests of the game and in consultation across key stakeholders. 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.

"Furthermore, we can now confirm that we have decided that all grassroots football is concluded for the 2019-20 season. This will allow the game to move forward and to commence planning for next season. Our County Football Associations (CFAs) will be supporting grassroots leagues over the coming days to determine how they should close out their current competitions."
