Board Resolution – Leagues and Return to Play

In a full board meeting held on 01.10.2020 ,the Board resolved the following as listed below.

Pursuant to Clause 13.1.2 of the KRU Regulations that gives the board the authority to amend competition rules during a season, it is decided that:-

With the playoffs remaining to conclude the fixtures it is not possible to determine a winner. As such no winner will be declared across the various leagues.  The results up to the last matches will however stand.

The teams that had been relegated as well will stand relegated given that their fixtures were completed.
To determine promotion – the lower leagues (Championship and Nationwide) will have playoff matches .  This means the pre-semi finals and/or quarter finals as well as the semi finals will be played before the start of the new season.
With the leagues declared over – the transfer window shall open on Monday 5th October to 30th November, 2020. With regard to the playoff matches for promotion, only players who played in the previous season shall be eligible.

As we await the resumption of the leagues and activities, the Safe Return to Training Committee shall be activated in the following week to set up the protocols as we liaise with the Government on when the games can resume.

The League and Fixtures Committee will come up with possible draft fixtures for the 2021 Season.
