  • The 1939–1940 season was the 48th season of competitive football in England. The kick-off in all divisions took place on Saturday 26 August 1939. On Friday 1 September 1939, Germany invaded Poland. On Saturday, 2 September 1939, all divisions of the Football League played their third game of the season. But these would be the last fixtures before abandonment following the British declaration of war on Germany on Sunday 3 September 1939. Large gatherings of crowds were suspended with the implementation of the Emergency Powers (Defence) Act 1939.Even though most competitions were abandoned as the country's attention turned to the war effort, a few leagues including the Southern League and Northern League did manage to complete a season. But some teams were unable to fulfil all their fixtures in the latter half of the season and resigned.Blackpool were leading the First Division when the season was abandoned. (en)
