RUFC - Confirmation of 2013 Play-Off Final Dates

The Football League and the Football Association have reached an agreement regarding the schedule of the 2012/13 Npower Football League Play-Off Finals to be held at Wembley Stadium.

They have been in talks regarding the re-dating of the games following confirmation that Wembley would stage the 2013 UEFA Champions League Final which is on Saturday, 25th May). Because of this the Npower League One and League Two Play-Off Finals will now move forward by seven days to the weekend of 18/19th May, with the 'regular' season finishing a week earlier in both divisions.

Football League Chairman, Greg Clarke told the Football League Official Site, 'I would like to thank FA Chairman, David Bernstein, for the professional and efficient manner in which these discussions have been handled. While The Football League's preferred option is always to stage the Play-Offs across the Bank Holiday weekend, we recognise that hosting the Champions League Final is a great opportunity for English football.

'However, it does have ramifications for clubs in Npower League One and Npower League Two and it is only right, therefore, that they share in the financial success of that event. This agreement ensures that they will.'

Mr Bernstein said, 'We are very pleased to have found a solution which allows the UEFA Champions League Final and all three Football League Play-Off Finals to be played at Wembley in 2013. The Football League is an extremely important partner of ours and it is thanks to their cooperation and the support of both Leagues One and Two that we have been able to resolve this matter. These will be fantastic and very important fixtures in The FA's 150th anniversary year.'
