Luton Town and Coventry City set for Wembley

18 May 2023

The Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final line-up has been confirmed with Luton Town and Coventry City set to face off to earn promotion to the Premier League.

The sides will take to Wembley Stadium on Saturday 27 May in a 4.45pm kick-off, in a game that will also be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Luton, who finished third in the Championship table, reached the Final with a 3-2 aggregate victory over Sunderland, managing to overturn a 2-1 deficit from the first leg with a 2-0 win back at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday.

There were fewer goals in the Semi-Final between Coventry and Middlesbrough, with the first leg in the Midlands ending goalless and Gustavo Hamer's second-half strike proving the difference in the return fixture at the Riverside on Wednesday.

Luton have not been in the top flight since 1992, and were in the National League as recently as 2014. Their last visit to Wembley was for their 2009 EFL Trophy success.

Coventry were mainstays in the Premier League between 1992 and 2001, but dropped to Sky Bet League Two in 2017. They won an immediate promotion through the Play-Offs beating Exeter City at Wembley.
