YORK City have received an 'Ordinary Resolution' from the National League in which they will be able to vote for the play-offs to take place.

The original proposal from the National League, which were widely reported last week, had stated that only one club from each of the step two divisions would be promoted.

This meant that National League North leaders York would have missed out at the expense of King's Lynn.

However, since then, the National League's claim that the play-offs could not take place due to a Government ruling on "elite sport" has been proved not to be the case.

Several MPs wrote to Oliver Dowden, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, in complaint at the National League's proposal while York and Havant & Waterlooville launched the joint #Promote2 social media campaign to put pressure on the league.

The National League sent the Ordinary Resolution to clubs on Monday evening, which confirmed that the champions of the step two divisions would be promoted through points-per-game and that the play-offs would take place, "if they are legally possible".

Clubs have until 5pm today to submit their votes. The 24 National League clubs will have one vote each while the clubs in the North and South will have just four votes per division. 17 votes are required for the motion to pass.

It is likely that the vote will pass, with only the relegation-threatened clubs in the National League likely to strongly oppose.

Should the play-offs take place, York's matches would take place behind closed doors and must start no later than July 18 and conclude by July 31. To take place, the play-offs would require a minimum of four clubs to be involved.
