Swindon Town have finally officially been crowned champions of League Two after English Football League clubs vote to end 2019/20 season.

Fans knew the news was coming but have been waiting weeks for it to be officially confirmed. The news was delivered this afternoon after clubs in English football’s bottom two divisions voted on how best to end the 2019/20 campaign.

The team have been promoted alongside runners-up Crewe Alexandra and third-placed Plymouth Argyle after it was decided that tables would be settled by a points-per-game format, while promotion, relegation and play-offs all remain.

In League One, Coventry and Rotherham go up to the Championship, but 'ongoing disciplinary matters' meant it is not yet certain who will drop out of League Two. Stevenage are currently bottom of the league, but they could be reprieved after Macclesfield Town were given a misconduct charge on 1 June.

The final games of the season were sidelined in the days before lockdown three months ago after the English Football League clubs voted to pause the season due to the ongoing health crisis.

The team and staff at Swindon Town are currently on furlough and it is not known yet how or whether they will celebrate their promotion.
