The National League Executive Committee (NLEC) has ruled this afternoon that the SSE Airtricity League will resume from July 31st.

A truncated season will be played under the existing format which allows for a promotion and relegation play-off.

This morning the clubs voted on four different options which included another format which would see just one club relegated from the Premier Division and one club promoted from the First Division.

This decision has been sent to the board of the FAI for ratification.

The statement released today reads: "Following a meeting at Abbotstown this morning, the NLEC has written to all clubs informing them that it has decided on Option oneĀ of the four options available for a resumption of the SSE Airtricity League.

"Option oneĀ maintains the current position with the League to resume as planned with two rounds of fixtures, 18 in total, and counting results of matches played to date.

"One club will be automatically promoted to the Premier Division from the First Division, with one club automatically relegated.

"A Play-Off will take place between the ninth placed Premier Division club and the winner of the First Division play-off series involving the teams that finish 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th in the First Division.

"The winner of the Play-Off will play in the Premier Division of the SSE Airtricity League in the 2021 season.

"The SSE Airtricity League is set to resume on July 31st and fixtures will be announced in due course."
