Golden Point in Championship in 2020

Recommended Posts

This is an interesting rule change next season:

Betfred Championship and League 1 clubs will fall into line with Super League by introducing golden point extra time in 2020 - but with a twist.

If a game is level after 80 minutes, teams will play two five-minute periods of extra time in a bid to get a positive result.

However, each team will receive a point for a draw as normal and an extra point will be up for grabs to the first team to score in extra time.

So, two teams face each other in the last match of the season - one needs two points for promotion and the other needs one point to avoid relegation.

What do they do ?

They arrange a draw after 80 minutes to each get a point and then allow the team wanting promotion to win by golden point.

What's that you say ? .... "It couldn't happen"

Couldn't it ?
