The final weekend of the English Football League season sees six teams battling it out for the final three promotion places across the three divisions at Wembley. Starting on Saturday 25 May, Newport County play Tranmere Rovers in the League Two play-off final.
Following that on Sunday 26 May is the League One play-off final between two former Premier League clubs as Charlton Athletic are up against Sunderland.
On Monday 27 May, Derby County and Aston Villa meet to decide the final promotion place to the Premier League in the Championship play-off final, in what's described as the most lucrative match in football.
Newport finished the League Two season in seventh place and overcame Mansfield Town in the semi-final to make it to Wembley. Tranmere finished sixth and beat Forest Green Rovers in their semi-final and are aiming for a second consecutive promotion. Both sides have been out of the Football League altogether in recent years, with Newport only getting promoted back to League Two in 2013 and Tranmere spending the 3 seasons before this season in the National League. A victory for either side would cap a remarkable rise.
In League One, Charlton and Sunderland have both had tough times of late since their respective relegations from the Premier League in 2007 and 2017. Getting back to the Championship would be viewed as the next step to return to a level more befitting clubs of their size. Charlton finished the season in third and needed penalties to beat Doncaster Rovers in their semi-final, while Sunderland finished fifth and overcame Portsmouth to reach Wembley.
The Championship play-off final is a West Midlands derby between Derby County and Aston Villa. The Rams only confirmed a spot in the play-offs on the final day of the season and finished 6th, while the Villans finished 5th after a 10-match winning streak in March and April. When the two sides met during the season, Villa won both times, 4-0 at home and 3-0 away, but this should be a tighter affair. With the largest prize money in club football at stake and a packed Wembley, both sets of players will be feeling the pressure.
If you want to watch the Championship, League One and League Two play-off finals online in Australia, you can do so on Foxtel Now and Kayo Sports, through the beIN SPORTS channel. It's also possible to subscribe to beIN SPORTS CONNECT directly.
Foxtel Now has an offer of $40/month for 6 months, though it doesn't have a free trial. This includes access to other non-sport channels as well. If you're only interested in sport only, Kayo Sports is a better option: The Basic option costs $25/month and lets you watch on 2 simultaneous screens, while the Premium option is $35/month and allows you to watch on 3 different screens at the same time. Both options come with a 14-day free trial period.
So you can just sign up to Kayo Sports on the 14-day free trial right now, watch the EFL play-off between Aston Villa and Derby - either live or on-demand - and then stop it if you don't like the amazing array of features.
beIN SPORTS CONNECT costs $19.99/month or $199/year and offers a 2-week free trial. While this is a cheaper deal than Kayo, it's worth noting Kayo broadcasts over 50 sports across 14 channels, including the 3 beIN SPORTS channels, 8 Fox Sports channels and 2 ESPN channels, so there's a much larger range of sports on offer there.
Kayo also offers features like SplitView, which allows you to watch up to four different things at the same time; No Spoilers, so you can watch on demand without knowing the score; and Key Moments, which places markers on a timeline so you can skip to the notable pieces of action.
Villa: Steer; Elmohamady, Tuanzabe, Mings, Taylor; Hourihane; Adomah, McGinn, Grealish, El Ghazi; Abraham.
Derby: Roos; Bogle, Keogh, Tomori, Cole; Johnson, Holmes; Wilson, Mount, Lawrence; Marriott.
The 3 matches begin at midnight on their respective days, with the broadcast of each beginning at 11:55pm AEST.

We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
