Although Premier League clubs have resumed close-contact training and are edging closer to the proposed June 17 restart date for matches, ‘up to 10’ Premier League clubs want relegation to be scrapped if the season is cut short due to the second wave of coronavirus infections

All the 20 league clubs are set to vote on what is to be done if the season is cut short at the shareholders’ meeting this Thursday.

According to a report by Sky Sports, in case the season is canceled due to the second wave of coronavirus infections; top-flight officials recommend that a simple points-per-game formula should determine the league standing of the clubs.

One top-flight club owner said he would vote for the Premier League to scrap relegation even after it was ruled out last month. “We would for no relegation if the season is curtailed,” he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. “There are up to 10 clubs who think the same thing,” he further added.

EFL Chairman has threatened legal action

This formula can be implemented in the future if the league has an early ending. The backing of at least 14 clubs in voting is needed to add this rule to the Premier League.

Liverpool would be champions of England, and Bournemouth, Aston Villa and Norwich City would be relegated based on the point-per-game method.

EFL chairman Rick Parry has threatened legal action if no relegation and promotion between the Premier League and the EFL Championship happens, claiming that there would be “outrage”.
