Luton and Coventry will battle it out in the 2022/23 Championship play-off final with a Premier League place up for grabs.
Since the Premier League’s inception in 1992, Luton have never been involved but were relegated from the then First Division in the 1991/92 campaign shortly before the competition was altered.
The Hatters have endured their share of ups and downs in their history but are now within an arm’s reach of promotion, while opponents Coventry are looking to return to the top flight for the first time since 2001.
Here’s all the information you need to know about securing a ticket for the hotly anticipated tie.
The 2022/23 Championship play-off final will be played at England’s home of football, Wembley – just like both the League One and League Two play-off finals.
Luton and Coventry will contend for a place in the Premier League on Saturday 27 May at 16:45 (BST).
The Sky Blues were in League Two as recently as the 2017/18 campaign when they won the play-offs to earn promotion to the third tier, which they won just two seasons later.
Opponents Luton have been in the Championship since 2019/20 as their successive promotions saw them rise up the English pyramid.

Luton vs Coventry
Tickets to the Championship play-off finals are mainly sold through the official websites of the two clubs that are going toe-to-toe.
They are split into five separate categories with the most expensive costing £98 and the lowest coming in at £18. In each category, the price point is dependent on age. The highest price points for all five categories are for adults, while young adults between the ages of 17 and 21 are able to purchase cheaper tickets.
However, those below the age of 16 and above the age of 60 are able to purchase concession tickets which are by far the cheapest available for all categories.
Season ticket holders of both clubs have been given priority, with those who have attended a certain amount of games allowed entry into the ticketing system just after. A general sale on both websites will be the last to be released, but the amount left may be lower than what fans would like and expect.
Category One: Adults – £98, Young Adults £73.50, Concession – £49
Category Two: Adults – £76, Young Adults £57, Concession – £38
Category Three: Adults – £64, Young Adults £48, Concession – £32
Category Four: Adults – £52, Young Adults £39, Concession – £26
Category Five: Adults – £36, Young Adults £27, Concession – £18

Coventry finished the season in fifth place and were given Middlesbrough to overcome in their two-legged semi-final tie.

Luton’s fine campaign in the Championship meant they secured third place but were 11 points adrift of the automatic promotion spots. Their respectable finish meant Sunderland were their competitors in the semi finals.
Luton were a goal ahead in the first leg through Elijah Adebayo but the home side found their groove as on-loan Manchester United youngster Amad Diallo levelled heading into the interval before Trai Hume bagged their second in the 63rd minute.
Luton responded with a 2-0 win at Kenilworth Road as goals courtesy of Gabriel Osho and Tom Lockyer proved enough to send Rob Edwards’ outfit through to the final at Wembley.
