The FA have announced a revised date for the 2019-20 Buildbase FA Trophy and Buildbase FA Vase Finals, along with the re-start schedule for the 2020-21 Vase and a date for the 2020-21 Trophy and Vase Finals.
The 2019-20 Finals, due to take place on Sunday 27 September 2020, were unfortunately postponed following updated COVID-19 restrictions from the UK Government.
But the 2020 Finals, which sit under the banner of the Non-League Finals Day, will now take place at Wembley Stadium on Monday 3 May 2021.
Despite the best efforts from the FA to accommodate limited spectators, a suitable date was sadly not available and both the Vase Final between Consett and Hebburn Town and Trophy Final featuring Harrogate Town and Concord Rangers will be played behind closed doors.
Meanwhile, the 2020-21 Vase campaign will re-start with outstanding matches in the third round proper on Saturday 10 April 2021 and the competition’s full schedule is as follows:
• Third round proper – Saturday 10 April 2021

• Fifth round proper – Saturday 24 April 2021
• Sixth round proper – Saturday 1 May 2021
• Semi-Finals – Saturday 8 May 2021
• The Final – Saturday 22 May 2021
The 2020-21 Trophy semi-finals are scheduled for Saturday 27 March 2021 and further details can be viewed here.
And 2020-21 Non-League Finals Day, featuring both the Trophy and Vase Finals will be held at Wembley on Saturday 22 May 2021 with limited spectators in line with the UK Government’s ‘roadmap out of lockdown’. Further information will be provided at the earliest opportunity.
The four Finals will be shown live on BT Sport with respective kick-off times and further details to be announced in due course.
The FA will continue to monitor the national COVID-19 situation alongside the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport and they thank the remaining clubs in these competitions and their supporters for being patient and understanding during this challenging time.
