Following the curtailment of the Academy Games Programme for season 2019/20, clubs yesterday agreed to determine the final standings using a Points Per Game system.
Due to the curtailed season, clubs were unable to complete the playoff fixtures.
It was therefore agreed that the Division 2 champions and second-placed team would both be promoted to Division 1 for the 2020/21 season.
The Points Per Game solution has also been applied to the Under-18 Premier League, the Under-18 Professional Development League and the Professional Development League, which features Under-23 Category 2 teams.
Despite the national playoff match not being able to be played, based on Points Per Game, Man City have been crowned overall Under-18 National champions and gained qualification for the 2020/21 UEFA Youth League.
Premier League Shareholders today also agreed to curtail the Premier League International Cup, the Premier League Cup and the U18 Premier League Cup, without a winner being awarded.
The 2020/21 season will include some changes to the structure of PL2 Division 1 and Division 2.
Three new Category 1 Academies, Burnley, Crystal Palace and Leeds United, will enter Division 2 for the upcoming campaign, meaning Division 1 will comprise 13 teams and Division 2 will feature 14 teams.
