The National League clubs have significant wage bills but very little TV money or handouts from above. They did receive grants earlier in the season in expectation that the behind closed doors scenario would be short term. Plainly this is not how things have worked out.
The League has ballotted clubs to see if they want to abort the season. All sorts of politics apply. Many clubs in the lower tier North and South divisions have taken matters into their own hands and refused to play as have in the top division Sam Woods Dover. If they do stop its far from clear whether clubs would be promoted into the EFL on PPG or simply lose their opportunity - currently old adversaries Torquay and Sutton are the top two clubs. If Sutton get awarded their cancelled game against Dover tonight, the two would be level on PPG. Would the EFL relegate two of its clubs into such an uncertain situation anyway.
All a complete mess. Must be doubtful all of the clubs will survive to start next season. More from the Guardian here.
