The National League, North and South playoff dates are revealed

The National League, National League North and National League South playoff dates have been revealed, after weeks of uncertainty.

It was the league organisation that first revealed the long awaited news on Saturday morning, and now a total of 18 participating clubs know what, when and how they can prepare.

Three divisions look set to finally play out their non league playoff fixtures after clubs voted to conclude the season based on unweighted points per game and reinstate playoffs.

All five of the National League play-off matches, including the final held at Wembley Stadium, will be broadcast live on BT Sport.

A meeting was held with the 12 competing playoff clubs and it’s been revealed that clubs will be required to develop a thorough Covid-19 risk assessment and stadium management plan in order to host matches.

Each hosting club need to appoint a Covid-19 Officer and a Medical Officer, both must have approval from the region’s Safety Advisory Group and the National League.

A coronavirus testing process needs to be developed by each club for the players and staff, and then approved by the National League Medical Officer.

Testing would take place weekly for a minimum of a three-week period, though it would be costly to many clubs, and this is why it’s up to the clubs to decide whether they are able to compete in them or opt out.

All five of the National League play-off matches, including the final held at Wembley Stadium, will be broadcast live on BT Sport.

Due to the current Government sporting guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic, all play-off matches will be played behind closed doors.
