By Oliver Osborn

The National League is delighted to have received confirmation of a financial contribution from the Premier League.

The Premier League announced a commitment to making additional financial contributions to support The National League, Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to existing solidarity, community and facility payments, the Premier League will help The National League prepare for, and deliver, the end-of-season play-offs.

Chief Executive Michael Tattersall commented: “We are pleased to receive the generous donation by the Premier League towards our end-of-season play-offs".

Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said: “The Premier League is a big supporter of the wider game and we will continue our commitments in this area despite our significant financial losses and ongoing uncertainty.

“In addition, we will provide £200,000 to The National League to help them to conclude their season and give more than £1 million to the WSL and the Women’s Championship to restart next season.”

The schedule for the play-offs is to be confirmed.
