Following meetings of the League Management Committees of both the Championship and Premier Intermediate League on Monday evening, club representatives across both leagues voted to request the Board of the NIFL consider cancellation of the proposed league season.

The league votes have been considered by the NIFL Board, who have approved the request of the clubs.

Regrettably, the NI Football League can therefore confirm that the 2020/21 NIFL Championship and NIFL Premier Intermediate League seasons have been officially cancelled.

In addition, the request from clubs to develop an alternative cup competition for Championship and Premier Intermediate League Cup clubs remains under consideration.

Any such competition would be played in the event that restrictions allow for a safe return to football during the remainder of the 2020/21 season.
