SCOTTISH clubs will soon discover the fate of a football season placed in limbo by the coronavirus crisis.
The SPFL board meets today (Wednesday) with all 42 league clubs over a series of conference calls.
Talks will take place to discuss different options available on how to complete the current campaign, or an alternative to declare the season null-and-void.
- Season could be all over says Elgin City defender Matthew Cooper
- Elgin request furlough move for all players and staff
- Elgin ask players to take wages reduction
- 'Not impossible' that Elgin City could go out of business, warns chairman Tatters
Elgin City chairman Graham Tatters will get an opportunity to air his views in the League 2 meeting, which will be held later this afternoon.
Before that, board members from the Premiership, Championship and League 1 clubs will have held their own league discussions.
Updates on health and safety regulations in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak will also be issued to all clubs.
Elgin is one club keen to see their season played to a conclusion if public safety allows it, so they can continue their challenge for promotion.
Gavin Price's side had climbed to third place in League 2 when Scottish football was halted on March 13, and were firmly in contention for a play-offs place with eight fixtures remaining.
City had won six of their previous seven matches and confidence was high that the club could gain their first move up the leagues in their 20-year league history.
However, with the current COVID-19 outbreak placing the country in lockdown, health experts expect it to be many weeks before restrictions will be eased.
