Dates Confirmed For The National League Play-Offs

By Oliver Osborn

The dates for The National League play-off period have been confirmed.

Fifteen season-defining fixtures are set to take place over seventeen days across the Vanarama National League, Vanarama National League North and Vanarama National League South.

Since 2018, the play-off positions have been extended to six- with the champions being promoted automatically.

In all three leagues, the remaining six fight it out for one final slot with two Eliminator matches taking place before the semi-finals.

The one-off match format has added even more excitement and kept more clubs involved in the shake-up for longer.

All five of the Vanarama National League play-off matches, including the Promotion Final held at Wembley Stadium, will be broadcast live on BT Sport.

Due to the current Government sporting guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic, all play-off matches will be played behind closed doors.
