Will Clubs Be Relegated?
At the bottom end of the league, along with promotion from the Championship, the situation become much more difficult and new plans are set to be announced in due time.

EFL Cup Axed?
The EFL Cup (Carabao Cup) would be postponed for one year to allow enough space in the fixture list and five clubs would then be relegated at the end of the 2020-21 season.
Agreements would have to be made across various leagues, along with the governing bodies, in order for proposals to be approved.
Champions League Continued?
The next matter on everyone’s mind now is the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.
The competition falls under the jurisdiction of UEFA, though news steps would be announced in order to determine the qualification process for the competition.
