Following meetings of both the Championship and Premier Intermediate league clubs which took place last night, it is with deep regret that we have to confirm that a decision has been made that the 2020/21 NIFL Championship and NIFL Premier Intermediate League seasons have been officially cancelled.
Even allowing for commencement in March, which would have been the earliest possible date for any form of a return to football, the general consensus was that to try to run a full league season from that time would be unworkable.
The league will now consider an alternative cup competition for Championship and Premier Intermediate League Cup clubs however any such competition would only be played in the event that restrictions allow for a safe return to football during the remainder of the 2020/21 season.
