How the points deduction came about from the BBC Article -
- December 2019: A 10-point deduction, with four suspended, for non-payment of salaries and failing to fulfil a fixture against Crewe. In March, this was reduced to a seven-point penalty with three suspended after Macclesfield appealed. It meant the club were deducted four points with immediate effect.
- May 2020: A seven-point deduction for failing to play a match against Plymouth and non-payment of wages, including the suspended three points from the first case being applied to the second punishment. That took the total deduction for the season to 11 points. A further two-point deduction was suspended.
- June 2020: That two-point deduction was activated by the latest ruling - taking the season's total deduction to 13 points.
Macclesfield Town are docked two points for late payment of wages, but stay in League Two at the expense of bottom club Stevenage.
