The league was discontinued in May, with the clubs given 3 options on how the season should be ended. Chelsea were second on 39 points, one behind Manchester City with 40 at the time of the break off, but the Blues had a match at hand. The teams decided to use the point-per-game basis, which saw Chelsea crowned Champions as Liverpool were relegated.

The FA Board has on 5th June 2020 confirmed the decision to award the 2019/20 Barclays FA Women’s Super League title to Chelsea FC Women and to award the 2019/20 FA Women’s Championship title to Aston Villa Women FC. “In addition, Chelsea FC Women and Manchester City Women FC will be nominated as the two English clubs to qualify for the 2020/21 UEFA Women’s Champions League competition, having finished in the top two places of the 2019/20 Barclays FA Women’s Super League season.
“The final team positions across both leagues also confirmed that Aston Villa Women FC would be promoted to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League for the 2020/21 season, and that Liverpool FC Women would be relegated to the FA Women’s Championship for the 2020/21 season. As the 2019/20 results were expunged between Tier 3 to Tier 7 of the women’s pyramid, there will be no relegation or promotion between the FA Women’s Championship and Tier 3 this season,”
Chelsea have completed the domestic double after winning the League Cup after beating Arsenal 2-1 in February.
