On Monday 11th May 2020 the WFA Executive Committee held a Special General Meeting to enable members to vote on how the 2019/20 National League season and WFA Cup should be concluded.

26 member clubs took part, each casting a vote to have their say. Following the meeting we can announce that the National League will be resolved by a points per game calculation (PPG).

Consequently, we have updated our league tables and can now provide the final league positions to bring the season to a close.

The WFA would like to congratulate West Bromwich Albion on retaining the WFA Premiership, securing the title for a third successive year. The division sees AFC Bournemouth Warriors and Brighton & Hove Albion move down into the Championship.

We also congratulate Newcastle United PFC, awarded the Championship title in their debut season. Joining them will be Leeds Chariots, who finish in 2nd place. Teesside PFC will also join them in the Premiership next season.

Prior to the postponement of fixtures, Sale United requested demotion to the WFA Championship for the 2020/21 season. With the points per game calculation placing Sale in 10th place, they would be in line to play in an end of season play-off fixture against the 3rd placed team in the Championship. Consequently the WFA Executive proposed they would swap with the 3rd placed Championship team if a PPG option was selected.

Shifnal Town will face regional entrant Greenbank PFC in a play-off game, prior to the 2020/21 season commencing, to decide the final place in the WFA National League.

Our member clubs also voted to complete the WFA Cup. With 7 fixtures remaining, the competition will be concluded at a neutral venue over a weekend, prior to the 2020/21 season commencing.

Regional leagues will also be undertaking similar meetings in the near future to discuss how to bring their respective seasons to a conclusion. 

We would like to thank everyone for the contribution to the season, both on and off the court and are grateful for everyone's patience and understanding at this time.

Yours in Sport,

The WFA Executive committee
