Uefa asks European Leagues for decision on domestic seasons by 25 May: Germany and England are planning (hoping?) to restart fairly soon while the Netherlands and France have already cancelled the remainder of their seasons. Either way, UEFA wants the results decided based on "sporting merit" in the current season. On the plus side, FIFA may allow up to five subs per team per game for matches that are played.

Is there a fair way to finish domestic seasons? focuses on England but questions apply to all leagues.

My college soccer conference (NAIA) awards two automatic berths to national tournament. One is given to regular season champion. Second is given to tournament champion, tournament runner-up if one team wins both championships.

Conference rules always state who gets second berth if tournament cannot be completed, presumably because of weather. Always thought that little rule was silly. Not so much anymore.
