Competitive football below the Conference has been cancelled this season after clubs decided playing on without supporters and the revenue they provide was not viable.
It is the second consecutive season that has been declared null and void.
When the “roadmap” for the easing of Covid-19 restrictions was first published, a group of non-league clubs in Yorkshire decided to club together to play a tournament of their own to give the players and supporters some football in anticipation they would be able to open their gates on April 12.
However, Prime Minister Boris Johnson's announcement on Monday ruled that out, so the aim is now to start the competition from May 17, which is now when supporters are expected to be able to return.
Eccleshill Unitted, Garforth Town, Emley, Ossett United, Silsden, Steeton and Thackley have withdrawn from the competition, leaving Brighouse Town, Campion, Golcar United, Liversedge and Penistone Church from the original line-up.
Attendances wil be limited to half each stadium's capacity.
