Future LEague Proposal 

2020.21 Future League PLANNING

  • December 2019 update 

England Handall will be hosting round table conversation in February 2020 as the final feedback stage. Clubs have been emailed directly information. 

  • March 2019 update 


After an initial proposal in 2017.18 to change the structure of the senior leagues, England Handball will be investigating and exploring a change to the league structure for implementation in the 2020.21 season. The initial proposals in 2017.18 were not developed further, in order to focus on creating sustainable junior league structures at u19, u16 and u14 level. 

After an internal review, England Handball believes it is appropriate to now focus on the delivery of the senior competition to support clubs and the long term ambitions of the sport. 

  • October 2019 update 

Initial proposals have been sent to clubs in January to March 2019, feedback from these proposals has been collated from a number of clubs. Having collated this information a new document has been created with the relevant information for league structure changes in 2020.21 season.
