National League Key Dates

The National League have confirmed some key dates for the 2024/25 season;

  • Fixture Release Day – Wednesday 10th July
  • Opening Day of the Season – Saturday 10th August
  • Final Day of the Season – Monday 5th May

The play-off final will again be at Wembley, later in May (date not yet confirmed but likely towards the end of the month).

Festive fixtures will be on Saturday 21st December, Boxing Day & New Years Day (Wednesday 1st January).  Clubs could opt to play the latter fixture on New Years Eve if both clubs agree to this.

In the past, Boxing Day and New Year fixtures were simply reversed.  Next season, Boxing Day fixtures will be reversed on Good Friday and New Year fixtures reversed on Easter Monday.
