Norwich Sporting director Stuart Webber want promotion scrapped if the season cannot finish

Norwich City manager Daniel Farke and Sporting Director Stuart Webber celebrate winning the Sky Bet Championship at Villa Park, Birmingham.

Promotion to the Premier League should be scrapped if Championship clubs fail to complete their season, according to Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber.

Webber insists the Canaries will not accept a scenario in which they finish the campaign and are relegated, only to be replaced by the likes of Leeds or West Brom whose season has been prematurely curtailed.

While Premier League continue to discuss options for 'Project Restart', there is less clarity on the the prospect of a return for football in the Championship, League 1 and League 2.

Webber told the Sky Sports Football Show: "What we could not accept is a situation where we play all our games and get relegated, but the Championship can't play, and they automatically promote some teams who haven't finished the season.

"For anyone who has got promoted from the Championship, it is a 46 or 49 game slog. It needs to be settled on the pitch - both coming up and going down."
