Details for the final day of the Championship, League One and League Two campaigns - as well as the play-offs schedule - have been confirmed by the English Football League.

The final round of League One matches will start at 12:30 BST on Saturday, 27 April, with League Two at 15:00.

The regular Championship season will end the following week, on Saturday, 4 May, with games kicking off at 12:30.

The play-offs will commence on 3 May, ending at Wembley on Sunday, 26 May.

Each division's two-legged semi-finals will be followed by finals at the national stadium - the League One showpiece will be on Saturday, 18 May, with the League Two final the next day.

The Championship play-off final, to decide who gets the final promotion place to the Premier League - dubbed the richest game in football - has been scheduled for 26 May, the day after the FA Cup final.

Kick-off times for the three finals are yet to be confirmed.

If Coventry, who are in the FA Cup last four and on the outskirts of the Championship play-off places, were to reach both finals, a change would need to be made to the schedule.
