Old Trafford For League One Play-Offs

Old Trafford For League One Play-Offs

Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium has been confirmed as the venue for the npower League One play-off final this season.

United's stadium, the biggest club stadium in the country, will host both League One and League Two play-off finals this season due to the Champions League final being held at Wembley, the usual play-off final venue, over the same weekend.

The Championship play-off final will still go ahead at Wembley, on Monday May 30, with the Champions League final scheduled for Saturday, May 28.

The League One play-off final will take place on Sunday, May 29.

It could Wednesday will be playing at Old Trafford this season if they fail to make the automatic promotion spots in League One and have to settle for a top-six spot.

with a bit of luck and all the dead wood now asked to leave we should not need the playoffs with a bit of luck and a good running streak.

come on wednesday pull your socks up so we don't have to go to manchester, of course i'll be more than happy to take winning the playoffs at old trafford - the main thing is GETTING OUT OF THIS LEAGUE. 3 points tomorrow would be a good start.

A day out in Manchester wasn't what i had in mind. Its what happens on the day that matters, if we are lucky enough to have the opportunity.

Its a cheaper option, and we will have spent a fortune on the FA Cup final at Wembley, so should be OK.

Hope we dont get to play at Old Trafford this season. Automatic spot is what I'd be aiming for. Playoffs are a major gamble. Not always the best team that goes through. Our garbage neighbours proved that!

im happy with OT to be honest, live in newcastle now but have friends in manc so will be a hell of a lot cheaper than trying to get down to london.
