What is the format of the League One Play-Offs?

The League One playoffs, as of 2021, feature the four teams that narrowly miss out on automatic promotion in the EFL League One. These teams engage in a series of playoff matches to determine the final promotion spot to the EFL Championship.

The third-placed team faces the sixth-placed team, while the fourth-placed team takes on the fifth-placed team in two-legged ties known as the “play-off semi-finals.” The winners of these semi-finals progress to the final, held at Wembley Stadium, where a single match decides the promoted team. Extra time and penalties may be used if required. As of 2022, VAR (virtual assistant referee) will be employed in the play-off final. The losing semi-finalists and runner-up remain in League One, while the victorious side earns promotion.

The League One Play-Off Final is a standalone match, which again can go to extra-time and penalties if the scores are level, with the winner promoted to the Premier League.
