>So here’s the reply I got from the Football League…they apparently “can’t give any more information at this time” than this…The FA will, I’m sure, respond by next November…
Thanks for your email regarding the play-offs. The Football League remains committed to using Wembley Stadium as its first choice venue for the Play-Off finals going forward, however an FA decision to stage the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday 28th May meant an alternative solution had to be found for this season.
Having liaised for some time to negotiate the best possible agreement for The League and its member clubs, a mutually agreed settlement was made to use Old Trafford for both the League 1 and League 2 finals.
Unfortunately we cannot provide any further information at this time.
