Fulham, Wycombe and Northampton Town were the promoted sides last year, but who will be participating in the play-offs this year and when will the games take place?

When are the EFL play-offs?

  • The EFL play-off finals will be played on the May Bank Holiday Weekend (Saturday, May 29 – Monday, May 31).
  • The EFL have yet to decide in which order the three leagues will play.
  • No date has been set for the EFL play-off semi-finals yet.
  • However, the regular season finishes on the weekend of Saturday, May 8 and Sunday, May 9.
  • Play-off semi-final first legs typically follow around a week after the end of the regular season.

How many fans will be allowed to attend the EFL play-off finals?

Should the roadmap be delivered as proposed, sports stadiums will be filled with ten thousand fans or 25 per cent of total capacity (whichever is the smaller).

As Wembley Stadium has a total capacity of 90,000, ten thousand supporters can be expected at each EFL play-off final.
