England's lower non-league divisions and grassroots game to end
The National League comprises a mixture of professional and semi-professional clubs
All English soccer below the three divisions of the fifth tier National League will end immediately due to the coronavirus pandemic with all results from the season expunged, the FA said on Thursday.
The top three National League divisions, the Women's Super League and women's championship remain in talks about how best to conclude their seasons.
However, with no new teams promoted into those leagues, they could decide to follow suit which would then affect the men's professional divisions.
The Premier League and other top level soccer in England is suspended until at least April 30 but the governing bodies have said the current season can be extended indefinitely.
"The FA and NLS (National League System) steps three to six have reached a consensus that their 2019-20 season will now be brought to an end, and all results will be expunged," the FA said in a statement.
"This will mean no promotion or relegation of clubs between NLS steps three to six, and no promotion to NLS step two."
The National League, popularly referred to as sponsor Vanarama, comprises a mixture of professional and semi-professional clubs.
