That didn’t last long!!! Apparently they plan to field a team in 2021 but surely they can’t be allowed to do that? Why pay all that money for SBW if finances were tight? Yet another farce for Superleague to deal with.

I agree.

You cannot just resign and then expect to walk back into the same division in the following season, pandemic or otherwise!

And who will they promote? I haven't seen anything about the lower leagues re-starting.

If the Championship does not resume to produce a promoted club, they could play with just 11 clubs and two extra loop fixtures or just play 27 fixtures instead of 29 and then revert back to the normal format in 2022.

It's not rocket science!

A lot of ignorance being displayed here. Remember they don’t get any central funding (no complaints from me) and are entirely self funded. They have the funds to pay their players and staff but not for hotels, stadia etc. Not having home match day income is a huge blow and would be to any club.

It’s sad that it’s happened and promotion and relegation should have been kiboshed by now anyway, prior to this today. I still stand by they should be in SL 2021.

Got into SL on merit, lots of folk sticking the knives in but Toronto have done more in three short years than most clubs outside of SL have done in thirty.

How? They gave the sport more exposure, expanded us properly into North America, developed a homegrown fan base, negotiated their own TV deal and gained promotion on merit.

A joke? That comment is completely ridiculous.
