For some, this weekend will bring elation – for others, it will bring heartache.

The EFL play-off finals are upon us, with teams from across the footballing pyramid bidding to secure their places in a higher division next season.

The stage is all set for a dramatic few days with potentially huge ramifications, and we’ve gathered all the information you need to know below…

Who is in the Championship, League One, and League Two play-off finals?

Battling it out for a place in the Premier League next season will Brentford and Swansea City.

Thomas Frank’s men booked their place in the final after beating Bournemouth last week, while the Swans edged out Barnsley over two legs.

In League One, Blackpool will play Lincoln City, with the two sides dispatching of Oxford United and Sunderland respectively in the semi-finals.

The vital clash in League Two sees Morecambe come up against Newport County, with the former beating Tranmere Rovers in the last round, and the latter beating Forest Green Rovers to book their place in the final.

When are the Championship, League One, and League Two play-off finals?

The play-off finals will take place at Wembley over the course of the weekend beginning Saturday May 29th.

Brentford will play Swansea that day, with kick-off scheduled for 3pm.

On Sunday May 30th, Blackpool and Lincoln will play each other, with kick-off again scheduled for 3pm.

The EFL season will then conclude with the League Two final between Morecambe and Newport on Monday May 31st. That game will also get underway at 3pm.

Will fans be allowed to attend the play-off finals?
