Chelsea have been confirmed as Women Super League champions
The top two flights of women’s football were axed on May 25 due to the killer virus.
Manchester City and Chelsea have been awarded places in the Champions League for next season.
The Blues sat second in the top-flight when the season was put on standby in March, but have leapfrogged table toppers Manchester City because they had played one less game.
City had 40 points from 16 games, while Chelsea had 39 points from 15 matches.
An official statement from the FA said: “The FA Board has reached a majority decision to decide the 2019-20 Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship on a basic points-per-game basis, with promotion and relegation determined on sporting merit,
“As a result, The FA Board has today confirmed the decision to award the 2019-20 Women’s Super League title to Chelsea Women, and to award the 2019-20 Championship title to Aston Villa Women FC.”
