The English Football League (EFL) are to make major changes to voting regulations in its annual general meeting on June 15.
Changes made could lead to a landmark on salary caps being introduced in the Championship and League One and Two clubs.
The move comes in the wake of COVID-19 restrictions that lead to lockdown in the Premier League – where a £1billion revenue fall in the 2019-20 season is expected.
At present it takes 75% of the clubs to vote through changes, but the EFL is reportedly looking to reduce this to two-thirds.
The vote is seen as a precursor to a vote on salary caps, said to be backed by clubs in Leagues One and Two. The Championship are to decide their position.
Changes mooted include a maximum of 20 players in squads, with Under-21s exempt from the budget cap, encouraging clubs to give Academy players a bigger opportunity.
Rick Parry the EFL chairman has said Football League clubs could go under, due to the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak. A report from Deloitte showed how vulnerable teams in the Championship were.
