Salford City, WembleySalford City’s first EFL Final appearance will take place on Saturday 13th March as part of the “Wembley Weekender”.

The first of back-to-back Papa John’s Trophy Finals, our postponed 2020 Final against Portsmouth will kick-off at 15:00 GMT, followed by the 2021 Final on Sunday 14th March.

Last season’s showpiece was postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, with the hope that it could be played at a later date when supporters were allowed to return to stadia.

However with no improvement on the horizon and further lockdown measures introduced in December, the decision was taken to refund nearly 60,000 supporters and play the game behind closed doors.

Sky Sports will broadcast both Finals on the weekend, it will not be available on our streaming platform.

Our scheduled League Two fixture against Barrow has subsequently been postponed, new arrangements will be announced in due course.

Supporters should now have received their refunds, if you have not done so please click here for information on what to do.


Salford City, Newport CountyIt should have been a second appearance at the National Stadium in two seasons after our National League Promotion Final triumph, but we have had to wait for the best part of a year to return to Wembley.

Our Papa John’s Trophy campaign started with a 2-0 win against Aston Villa Under-21s, before we won by the same scoreline away at this season’s semi-finalists Tranmere Rovers to top our group.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Under-21s and Port Vale were both seen off 3-0, before a comeback win against League One Accrington Stanley set up a semi-final at Newport County.

A tight affair in South Wales ended 0-0 and went all the way to a penalty shootout, which The Ammies won 5-6.

Pompey are looking to make it back-to-back wins after beating Sunderland in the 2018-19 Final, but there will be no treble with both teams out of this season’s competition.
