Premier and Championship divisions restructured for campaign restart.


Following the latest government announcement that outdoor sports can look to restart from the 29th of March, clubs have been eagerly waiting for updates from their respective leagues.

On Friday, the Mid Sussex Football League held a meeting to discuss a potential restart, with the 3rd of April being targeted to relaunch the campaign. The question is, how will the league go about completing the league in time for summer sports such as cricket.


Today, the league has updated the Premier and Championship divisions’ structure in the Mid Sussex Football League. We will now see those divisions split in half, and it will likely see each team playing six matches. With lighter evenings allowing clubs to play midweek fixtures, this should see the season completed in time for summer sports.

The lower leagues will see business as usual with no structure changes (as of yet).
