Notts Voting For Playoff Solution

Notts County Football Club have confirmed that they will be voting in support of the National League’s Ordinary Resolution, which if passed would see the club compete in the play offs to determine which side joins champions-elect Barrow in gaining promotion to the Football League.

The National League have asked clubs to submit votes for a solution to conclude the season by Wednesday 17th June 2020 and Notts will support a points-per-game basis that will in theory see the Magpies finish third in the table thus securing a playoff slot in the Division.

If passed by the majority of member clubs, Notts would then host the winners of Yeovil Town verses Barnet in the Playoff Semi-Final with a Final to be played at a neutral venue with all games behind closed doors.

Notts County state “The proposal mirrors the resolution of the League Two season, which in our view is fair and correct, and we are already very well prepared to challenge for play-off success should the resolution pass.”

“We would like to thank our fans for their continued support and positivity, which has not gone unnoticed in recent weeks, and we look forward to providing further updates as soon as we have them.”

The National League have suggested that should they go ahead the play-offs must commence no later than 18th July and be completed by 31st July with all participating clubs paying for players and staff to be tested for coronavirus to a level set by the National League board. The clubs must also agree to share the net costs for staging each match.
