The majority are believed to want a 22-game season which will see the league split after 18 games. However, they’ll need at least eight of the ten clubs in each division to vote for the proposals to go ahead. If not, things will return to the 27-game format.
Under the plans, every club will need to hit the 18-game mark by April 23 for the split to come into effect. If not, it will move to an 18-game season with a deadline of May 6. If that comes and goes without all clubs completing their fixtures then the final tables will be decided on a points-per-game basis.
SPFL company secretary Calum Beattie said: “Since the suspension of League 1 and 2 matches was lifted by the Scottish FA on 2 March, we have been in near-constant communication with the club representatives that make up the League 1 and 2 Steering Group.
“Those discussions have been very productive with everyone working extremely hard to develop a proposition that is agreeable to all parties.
“Although the recommendation from the SPFL Board was that an 18-match season was the most practicable option, we fully recognise and respect the desire from clubs in Leagues 1 and 2 to aim for 22 games.
“I am pleased we have now reached an agreement that I hope will be approved by the clubs in the coming days.”
