EFL trophy presentations to be delayed until final day of the season due to four-day social media boycott across football… as Norwich, Hull and Cheltenham look to clinch titles
- EFL trophy presentations will be delayed until the final day of the season
- The delay will take place to avoid a clash with the social media boycott
- Norwich, Hull and Cheltenham can clinch their respective titles this weekend
The EFL trophy presentations will be delayed until the final day of the season to avoid any potential clash with the upcoming four-day social media boycott across football.
Championship Norwich, League One Hull and League Two Cheltenham could all be crowned champions this weekend if results go their way. But the EFL have decided that none of them will lift the trophy this weekend even if the titles are decided.
With games still taking place behind closed doors, clubs’ official social media channels would become even more important for them to bring their fans closer to the celebrations. But that will not be possible this weekend because of the boycott, and the EFL have chosen to ensure that supporters do not miss out.

Along with their EFL counterparts, clubs from the Premier League, Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship will fall silent on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts from this Friday at 3pm through to 11.59pm on Monday.
If Norwich and Hull clinch their leagues, they will be handed the trophy after away matches at Barnsley and Charlton respectively, while Cheltenham finish the season at home to Harrogate.
The preference is always for teams to lift trophies on home soil, but clubs being crowned on away territory is not unusual, and is less of an issue given the lack of fans at matches.
