Dundee Vote Yes To SPFL Resolution
Dundee have voted yes to an SPFL resolution,meaning the Scottish Championship, League One and League Two will finish for the season.
Dundee United have been declared champions of the Ladbrokes Championship, Raith Rovers are champions of Ladbrokes League 1, and Cove Rangers have been crowned champions of Ladbrokes League 2.
The SPFL will launch a task force to consider the possibility of expanding the Premiership for the 2020/21 season.
Championship club Dundee ended up with the deciding vote on the plan – after their original vote did not reach the SPFL – and, having originally intended to vote against, they have now voted in favour meaning the directors’ written resolution has passed.
SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster said: “Prior to this positive result, we were unable to make the vital end-of-season payments, which will provide a lifeline to so many clubs in the lower divisions.
“From our detailed discussions with clubs, many were facing an enormous cash-flow crisis. We have moved as quickly as possible to try to resolve this unprecedented situation.
