Having previously indicated their preference to end the season, clubs passed a resolution to do so on Tuesday afternoon.

It followed a vote that morning which saw EFL clubs adopt the board's proposed framework that, in the event of a curtailed campaign, unweighted points-per-game would be used to determine the final placings as well as promotion, relegation and play-off positions.

It means that Morecambe will end the season 22nd in League Two, ahead of both Macclesfield Town and bottom club Stevenage.

Swindon Town have been confirmed as champions with Crewe Alexandra and Plymouth Argyle securing the second and third automatic promotion places to League One.

Cheltenham Town, Exeter City, Colchester United and Northampton Town will contest the play-offs.

As for who goes down, the bottom club will be relegated to the National League provided the EFL board receives the necessary assurances that the National League will start the 2020/21 season.

However, given a recent charge facing Macclesfield, the final placings cannot yet be confirmed.

League One clubs have subsequently ended their campaign as well with Tranmere Rovers, Southend United and Bolton Wanderers dropping into League Two for next sason.
