THE EFL season has reached its business end with promotion battles taking shape.

And the campaign will conclude with the traditional play-off finals at Wembley, which will be played in front of fans if the government roadmap stays on track.

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.

What TV channel are EFL play-off matches on and can I live stream them?

  • Sky Sports hold exclusive rights to EFL coverage, including the play-off games.
  • Matches will be shown live on channels such as Sky Sports Football and Sky Sports Main Event.
  • Some matches may be shown on the Sky Sports Red Button if they overlap with others.
  • To stream EFL play-off matches live, head to your Sky Go account.
  • Non-Sky Sports subscribers can still watch all the action with a Now TV Day Pass from £9.99.

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.
