The 2023 National League play-off final will be held at Wembley for the first time in three years, it has been confirmed.

It is set to take place on Saturday, May 13 at 3pm.

It will be the first time the final has been at the national stadium since 2020. In 2021 it was at Bristol City’s Ashton Gate and last year West Ham United’s London Stadium hosted it.

National League general manager, Mark Ives, said: “The Vanarama National League promotion final is the most highly anticipated date in our calendar.

“We are delighted to be staging our showpiece promotion final at the most iconic football stadium in the world for the first time in three years.

“Grimsby Town won promotion last season in the most dramatic of circumstances and that is the kind of drama I’m sure will be reproduced this year at a fitting venue.”

Fans can already buy ‘early bird’ tickets for the final priced £20 for adults, £10 for over 60s, while under 16s go free. The deadline is Thursday, April 27.
