Manchester City and the Football Conference are delighted to announce this season’s Blue Square Bet Premier Promotion Final will be held at the City of Manchester Stadium.
The final has moved from Wembley Stadium this season after a potential clash with the UEFA Champions League Final. The showpiece final, with the ultimate prize of a place in the Football League, will take place on Saturday, May 21.
Football Conference Chairman Brian Lee said: “We are thrilled to have secured a world renowned venue of the quality of the City of Manchester Stadium. Having enquired about several Premier League venues, it was unanimously agreed that Manchester City is the ideal stadium for the Football Conference Promotion Final.”
Mike Summerbee, City’s Club Ambassador, said: “It is an honour to host this match at the City of Manchester Stadium. For as long as I can remember, the Conference League has been hugely important, particularly in the north. It provides an invaluable training ground for younger players, and we are very excited to host this event.”
