Latest ticket sales revealed by Chesterfield and Notts County for 2023 National League Playoff Final

The latest ticket sales have been revealed by Chesterfield and Notts County for this weekend’s 2023 National League Playoff Final.

The two sides face off at Wembley Stadium battling it out for a return to the EFL and the winner of the game will join champions Wrexham in League Two for 2023/24.

Notts County finished as runners-up behind Wrexham this year and had to settle for a play-off spot despite their impressive season – picking up 107 points from 46 games.

Chesterfield also experienced a good campaign under Paul Cook and finished third with 84 points.

Notts County broke records for goals scored in a fifth tier campaign with 117, while Macaulay Langstaff set an all-time mark by scoring 42 goals during just one league campaign.

A rail strike, coach prices and the β€˜cost of living crisis’ have made getting to Wembley difficult and expensive.


According to Spireites Police, Chesterfield have sold just over 10,000 as of Tuesday, with many more standing in the rain booking their tickets.


Notts ticket sales have reached 20,000 for Saturday’s Vanarama National League play-off final at Wembley Stadium (kick-off 3.30pm).

We have been allocated the east end of the national stadium and seats can be purchased here, including on matchday. Sales are exclusively online.

Meanwhile, we have provided an update on coach travel, car parking and next weekend’s train strikes.

Official coach travel – sold out

All official coaches are now at full capacity. If you joined the waiting list and have not heard from us, you have unfortunately been unsuccessful.

In the early part of this week we worked tirelessly alongside our trusted travel providers to to source additional coaches after selling out our initial convoy of 14 immediately after our semi-final victory.

These efforts resulted in us securing transport for a limited number of additional supporters and, by mid-afternoon on Wednesday, all remaining spaces had been taken by those on the waiting list.

Unfortunately, demand far outweighed supply and we were unable to accommodate everyone.

Supporters with official coach travel bookings are urged to arrive in good time ahead of their coach’s departure time (9am, 9.30am or 10am).

Return journies will begin once a reasonable period of time has elapsed following the final’s conclusion.

Due to the high level of interest, we are unable to offer secure car parking at Meadow Lane for supporters using our coach service.

Fans will be issued a ticket for their specific coach, numbered from 1 upwards.

Car parking

Event-day coach and minibus parking remains available to book at Wembley, along with Blue Badge bookings. Click here for details.

Both Wealdstone and Northwood FC’s kind offer of parking at their stadiums is no longer available as all spaces have been taken.

Rail strikes

East Midlands Railway have confirmed that, due to strike action on the day of the final, departures will only be available from 7am until 4.30pm – meaning our supporters will be unable to complete a return journey via train on matchday.

In addition, there will be no services at all on Friday 12 May – the day before the final.

EMR advise: β€œOnly travel by rail if absolutely necessary and be aware that strike action will affect other routes across the country, with very limited services running across the whole rail network.”

Please see EMR’s website for further details.

The London Underground network is not included in the strike action.

This is what fans said as the latest ticket sales are revealed by Chesterfield and Notts County for the 2023 National League Playoff Final…

@Trentvilla1: Will be there with my boys just like the semi. Really hope County win they deserve promotion.

@StockportFCFans: It will be criminal if you don’t go up this season. Best of luck, Notts!

@wardythemagpie: When we beat Tranmere in 1990 the attendance was only 29k. If transport wasn’t an issue for a Saturday we’d exceed that on out own.

@JackWinfield11: It’s our third time not as much as a novelty. We took 23k in 2012 first time at new Wembley. 14,15k for chesterfield this time round

@skibumg: Hope you win!! Deserve it with the points total you got!!

@scottsa07461696: Good luck Notts 🀞🏻 hoping justice prevails and you make your way back to the FL at the weekend. Outstanding season

@AdamCharlie10: Some effort that fair play πŸ‘πŸ‘

@albion446: Good luck in the final you definately deserve to go up and hope you get the coverage after it aswell just like that favourite media team got πŸ‘

@Richard90640750: Yeah Expect around 15k going down wat would be fantastic support COYB

@spireitesgroup: Expect us to hit 15/16k I think. Which is a great effort with strikes etc

@lukecfc5: That’s good going with the travel situation.

@Damien186204: No other country does it quite like us for a fifth tier game.

@ryanthecreatr: Genuinely feel like this is because it’s just proper football. Fans are falling in love again, realising that you don’t need to support the big boys anymore to enjoy your games. Might be wrong, but just feels – proper?

@mirkobolesan: English football is nuts, part 43432
