The League is delighted to announce that working in collaboration with Lincoln City Football Club, all four of our Cup Finals will once again be held at the home of Lincoln City FC at the LNER Stadium, Sincil Bank, Lincoln.
Originally the dates agreed for the finals were Sunday 7th and Sunday 14th May 2023 with one game on each Sunday taking place in the morning, and one game taking place in the afternoon.
Due the weekend involving Sunday 7th May 2023 now being the celebrations of the Kings Coronation, the EFL have now moved Lincoln City’s final League 1 fixture of the Season, at home to Shrewsbury Town, to be played on Sunday 7th May 2023, thereby cancelling the arrangements that had been made with Lincoln City to play at the venue on that date.
Accordingly, with extremely limited last minute choice, caused entirely by the recent EFL decision, the League’s Cup Finals will now be allocated across the following dates:
Monday 8th May 2023 (evening kick off under floodlights).
Saturday 13th May 2023 (evening kick off under floodlights).
Sunday 14th May 2023 (One final in the morning).
Sunday 14th May 2023 (One final in the afternoon).
An announcement will be made in due course as to the allocation of each Cup Final. With Semi Final games still involving teams that remain in more than one Competition it will not be possible to allocate and confirm the exact final arrangements until the finalists are actually known.
