The Barclays FA Women’s Super League season could be completed over a six-week period, with games played behind closed doors at one central base.

BBC Sport reports that options for finishing the campaign were outlined to clubs during a conference call, including the possibility of having to void the season.

While home and away matches are said to have not yet been ruled out, St George’s Park is understood to be under consideration to be the central venue for games, which would be played behind-closed-doors.

The campaign could not restart until the weekend of 6-7 June at the earliest, teams then perhaps playing twice per week in order to tie up the season on the weekend of 18-19 July.

An FA spokesperson said in a statement: “We are in the early stages of assessing what options are available for when it is safe and appropriate to resume the FA WSL and FA WC seasons.

“This includes the potential use of neutral venues.

“Any scenarios are under constant review in line with the latest government advice. We are in regular contact with all clubs and the safety and welfare of everybody involved remains our priority.”
