The kick-off time for Consett’s FA Vase final at Wembley against Hebburn Town has today been confirmed as 1pm.
The game, which is held over from the 2019-20 season, will be played behind closed doors, but is being televised live by BT Sport.
It will be followed by the delayed 2020 FA Trophy final between Concord Rangers and Harrogate Town, which is also being screened live.
The FA also reiterated its decision that the game will be played with no supporters present.
It said: “Despite our best efforts to accommodate a limited number of spectators, a suitable date was sadly not available within the stadium’s calendar, and both fixtures will be played behind closed doors.”
However, a limited number of spectators will be permitted to attend the 2020-21 FA Vase and FA Trophy finals, which take place on May 22, in line with the Government’s ‘roadmap’ out of lockdown.
The FA added: that it “would like to once again thank the clubs and supporters in these competitions for their understanding throughout this challenging time.”
Three Northern League clubs retain an interest in this season’s competition, which resumes this Saturday. They are Hebburn Town, Shildon and West Auckland Town.
Now the kick-off time is confirmed, Consett AFC will shortly be launching a virtual ticket and a special Wembley edition of our matchday publication the Steelman for our final. Watch our social media for further details.
