The FA and Women’s Super League (WSL) clubs remain no closer to deciding whether to end the season following a further round of talks on Tuesday.
Details of how the men’s Premier League will be finalised remain unclear as they await further government guidance on medical protocols around player training and the top division of the English women’s game find themselves in a similar situation.
WSL clubs and the FA are willing to wait until the Premier League decides on a course of action with regard to player testing, neutral venues and player and staff lockdowns before coming up with a definitive return plan themselves.
The FA is planning various scenarios for ways to end the season, including ending it now, playing all remaining games behind closed doors, or even organising a single neutral venue to stage all matches.
A decision from the WSL is not expected for at least a couple of weeks unless there is major movement at the top level of the men’s game.
