Following the news that the FA have declared all leagues below National League North/South are null and void. This petition has been created to make a stand against the decision and ask that the seasons are to be completed. 

The decision should be consistent throughout the football pyramid. If the top level plays on. So should we. 

A lot of non league teams have some 4/5 games in hand over others, some in relegation battles and others in races for promotion. Matchday revenue is massive for these teams. Finishing the season will only be a benefit. You have teams that have travelled a lot of miles to participate in the likes of the FA Vase, FA Trophy and all the other cups in their respective leagues. These cups should be completed. The same applies for women’s football. They put in the same amount of effort, time and money to get through a season. 

In Sunday League football, the owners of the teams, mainly someone who plays for the team, put a fair amount of money in keeping the team above water, cup entries, referee fees and pitch hire.... Especially when it’s a struggle getting all the players to pay their subs. Cancelling leagues at this level would be a kick in the balls to the clubs. Especially where Sunday league is slowly dying out. This may cause teams to fold at this level.

Nobody wants their leagues to end, no matter the level of football being played. Let’s get these leagues wrapped up in the same way the Premier League does. If next season has to be delayed slightly so be it.
