EFL trophy presentations are being postponed to the last day of the season due to social media boycotts
EFL trophy presentations are delayed to the last day of the season due to four-day social media boycott for football … now that Norwich, Hull and Cheltenham are looking for titles
- EFL trophy presentations are postponed until the last day of the season
- The delay will be in order to avoid a clash with the social media boycott
- Norwich, Hull and Cheltenham can claim their respective titles this weekend
The EFL trophy presentations will be delayed until the last day of the season to avoid a possible clash with the upcoming four-day social media boycott in football.
Championship Norwich, League One Hull and League Two Cheltenham could all be crowned champions this weekend if results go well. But the EFL has decided that none of them will win the trophy this weekend, even if the titles are decided.
With games still happening behind closed doors, clubs’ official social media channels would become even more important to them in bringing their fans closer to the celebrations. But that won’t be possible this weekend due to the boycott, and the EFL has chosen to make sure supporters don’t miss out.
The EFL trophy presentations will be delayed until the last day of the season to avoid clashing with the four-day social media boycott of football.
Championship Norwich and League One Hull (above) could be crowned champions this weekend if results are to their liking
Along with their EFL counterparts, Premier League, Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship clubs will be silent on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts from this Friday at 3:00 PM to 11:59 PM Monday.
If Norwich and Hull make their leagues, they will receive the trophy after away games at Barnsley and Charlton respectively, while Cheltenham will close the season at home against Harrogate.
The preference is always for teams to take home trophies, but clubs being crowned in away territory is not uncommon and less of a problem given the lack of fans at matches.
League Two Cheltenham can also take the title this weekend after gaining promotion
