English league clubs are set to satisfy on 8 June because the league aims to rubber-stamp proposals on the way to end a season early due to coronavirus.

The EFL board “unanimously” prescribed a framework at a gathering on Wednesday, but now needs clubs to approve it.

The new framework was laid out on 21 May, including promotion, relegation and play-offs remaining.

Teams united Two have already indicated they want to finish the season, but League One sides remain undecided.

Championship clubs, whose players returned to training on Monday, hope to resume their campaign in June.

Two rounds of coronavirus testing are conducted so far across the 24 clubs within the second tier, with quite 1,000 tests administered whenever .

Two people at Hull City tested positive within the first round revealed on Sunday, 

while two unnamed Fulham players and Blackburn captain Elliott Bennett tested positive within the second round of results.

On Thursday, the Premier League announced a provisional restart date of 17 June with up to 6 games at neutral venues. 

The EFL said it had been their intention to play all remaining fixtures at clubs’ home grounds.

“At an equivalent time as advising on its proposed approach last week, 

the board had asked clubs to offer it appropriate consideration and supply any feedback,” the EFL said during a statement.

“Communications were submitted from clubs across all divisions and people proposals, a number of which are made available 

publicly, suggested how the framework within the event the season is ended prematurely could alternatively work.

“A decision on whether or to not curtail the season may be a interest be considered by clubs in any affected division, 

but just one occasion a framework for resolving open issues in such circumstances has been agreed by all members across all divisions through a regulation change.”

Clubs are given until next Tuesday to continue submitting any alternative proposals for a way the framework could work.

A 51% majority of clubs within the Championship, League One and League Two is required to approve the curtailment of the campaign in each division.

Currently, unweighted points-per-game would decide final league placings altogether three divisions if the respective seasons can’t be completed.

Meanwhile, the National League will await a choice by the EFL on the way to conclude the League Two campaign before deciding their next steps.

The regular season is over at non-league level, but the National League wants to preserve two teams being promoted into the EFL which may involve play-off games being staged.
