It is possible that fans will be allowed into the 90,000-seater stadium for the final, but it will depend on the public health situation in England as the UK government continues to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic.

In terms of online streaming, Sky Go is the network's dedicated service.

In the US, the ESPN / BAMTech network and its online streaming platform ESPN+ are the sole outlets broadcasting the Championship play-offs.


Fans set to be in attendance

Boris Johnson announced that supporters may be able to return from Monday, 17 May in limited numbers.

Up to 10,000 people or a quarter of the capacity, whichever is smaller, will be permitted in the largest venues, such as Wembley Stadium.

However, smaller arenas will be limited to either 4,000 people or half of their capacity, whichever is lower.

The government ran a series of pilots this month with the FA Cup semi-final between Leicester and Southampton and the Carabao Cup final among the first games which saw fans successfully back in stadiums.
