The FA have reportedly decided to end the Women’s Super League season following crunch talks on Friday.
The Football Association remain adamant that a champion will be crowned on “sporting merit.”
This is likely to be similar to the way the Sky Bet League Two standings have been decided and will be based home and away points per game.
The decision is yet to be ratified but a source to the Independent that it is “inevitable.”
Testing for the novel Covid-19 coronovirus would be the major stumbling block in restarting the league this season. The bill would be about £140,000 for each club to maintain testing capabilities.
With the lack of money in the women’s game, many teams would not be able to afford this and as a result, the league will be ended but not expunged as the leagues below the Women’s Championship have been.
This will probably lead to Chelsea being crowned champions. Emma Hayes’ side have enjoyed an undefeated season thus far and lead the league on PPG.
Liverpool are set to get relegated from the WSL just five years after completing back-to-back league winning campaigns.

The Championship will probably follow in the footsteps of the WSL, but with Aston Villa having a healthy lead at the top, they should be crowned champions.
There will probably not be a relegation from the Championship with the leagues underneath the second tier having been expunged.
The Women’s Super League will join both the French D1 and the Spanish Primera Iberdrola in being ended. Lyon were awarded their fourteenth straight D1 title despite being just three points ahead of closest rivals PSG.
Barcelona were awarded the Spanish title, with their nine-point lead enough for the Spanish FA to crown them champions.
The Frauen-Bundesliga is set to return later this month, in line with the return of the men’s Bundesliga.
There is no word on when a new season will start but the aim should still remain to be the first weekend in September, when the WSL season should be scheduled to start.
