Non League Finals day at Wembley!
Non-League Finals Day returns for 2017 offering fans the unique opportunity to watch two cup finals for the price of one!
The Wembley double header takes place on Sunday 21 May kicking off with The Buildbase FA Vase final, followed by The Buildbase FA Trophy final.
Northern Counties East League champions Cleethorpes Town take on Northern League champions South Shields in the Vase while there’s an all National League battle in the Trophy final between Macclesfield Town and York City.
Last season Wembley Stadium connected by EE hosted the first ever Non-League Finals Day - a huge success with over 46,000 fans in attendance for two shock results. Despite the presence of club mascot ‘Ronaldo’ the bull, favourites Hereford FC were beaten 4-1 by Morpeth Town in the Vase final. In the Trophy final, FC Halifax Town won 1-0 against National League play-off winners Grimsby Town.
With tickets priced at only £25 adults, £10 concessions and £1 kids it represents great value too. Not only this but for group bookings of 9 or more, the price of adult tickets halves to just £12.50.
The record attendance for an FA Trophy final is 53,262 and we believe we should be able to beat that if we, as a community, see the value of the day and come together.
With interest in the non-league game rising all the time, this is a great opportunity to celebrate what we have and enjoy a great day out. It could be a defining moment. Be part of it.
Founder, Non-League Day
