Since March, football has been played in secret until limitations were lifted in certain zones of England this week, which means clubs have passed up essential matchday income. 

In October, EFL clubs dismissed the Premier League's proposed £50m salvage bundle for League One and Two clubs, saying it "falls some path short" of the necessary sum. 

First class clubs made the proposal in the wake of choosing not to seek after Project Big Picture. 

Yet, in November, clubs "concurred on a basic level" for those in League One and Two to get the bundle from the Premier League.
