'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Play-offs scheduled for Cardiff

The Football League has today confirmed that the 2005/06 Play-Off finals will take place at The Millennium Stadium.

Football League head of John Nagle communications said: 'The Football League has exercised an option, negotiated in September 2004, to stage the Coca-Cola Football League Play-Off Finals at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. “The League's five annual showpiece finals will return to Wembley Stadium next season.'

The Play-Off Finals, along with the FA Cup, were originally scheduled to take place at the new Wembley Stadium, but as expected the stadium will not be ready in time to host the events in May 2006.

This means that the Yellow Army will have to make the long trip down the M4 to South Wales instead of the short twelve-mile journey to Wembley for the Championship Play-Off Final that takes place on Sunday May 21. However, Watford fans will be hoping that they will not have to go through the trauma of the play-offs as catching Sheffield United, who are ten points in front of the Golden Boys with twelve games to play, is still a possibility.
