I am sure there is some logical reason, but does anyone know why the L2 Play-Off Final is a week early next year ?

Cheers Martin, but I guess that just brings up the next question.
Why have they swapped round the FA Cup final and the L2 play-off final?

I don't know why the FA Cup final has moved, but I'm sure it takes precedence.

The Euro’s start on 12th June, but the Premier League will run for a further week until Sun 17th May because in February the ten EPL games are over two weekends so the EPL teams can have a warm weather mid winter break to play games in the Gulf.

Most internationals players will want a break after 17th May, so FA Cup final is tagged on end of season (ie 23rd May). So League Two play off final is bumped to week before because Wembley will be used for FACup final on 23rd.

I would imagine the regular League Two season will finish a week earlier than rest of EFL, so League Two teams will have to play an extra midweek set of fixtures more than League One teams.
Can we play Accrington Stanley every week.
