    Aston Villa have provided an explanation on their website for the timing of the match - U23s Final: Explanation of Play-Off date

    Find below an explanation of the Villa v Brighton U23 Play-Off Final date, which is set to take place on the same day as our first team Play-Off away leg at Middlesbrough.

    The scheduling of the match was determined by the Premier League.

    Aston Villa submitted a request for the final to take place outside the designated dates of the 4th to 7th May due to our U23s participating on the Premier League Cup Final on 4th May.

    Unfortunately, Brighton have a Sussex Senior Cup Final against Crawley Town on Wednesday 9th May, which we were advised could not be rescheduled thus preventing the fixture from taking place this week.

    Competition rules state that the final must be played at the home venue of the highest-placed Play-Off finisher.

    With our second-leg Championship play-off tie against Middlesbrough taking place on Tuesday 15th May, the fixture couldn’t take place beyond Saturday to allow sufficient time for the pitch at Villa Park to be prepared properly for the first-team.

    We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

    The club is currently working on broadcasting the game live on our media channels for supporters who are unable to attend due to travelling to Middlesbrough for the Play-Off first leg.
