BT Sport is making next the Non-League Finals Day available for free, allowing football fans to watch both the FA Vase and FA Trophy finals without a subscription on May 3rd.
BT Sport’s coverage will be available to watch without a subscription via btsport.com, the BT Sport App, BT TV, the Sky Digital Satellite platform, and Virgin Media channel 100.
Coverage gets underway with a live broadcast from 12.45pm on BT Sport 1 of Consett v Hebburn Town in the FA Vase Final at Wembley Stadium.
This will be followed at 3.30pm on BT Sport 1 by The Grassroots Football Show; a one hour special building on BT’s long-standing partnerships with the four UK Home Nations football associations to celebrate grassroots football. Presented by Robbie Savage and Jules Breach, the show visits local clubs and volunteers throughout the UK to discuss the importance of these teams within the community and how they have stayed connected without football.
From 4.30pm fans will be able to tune in to the second live final of the day from Wembley, as Harrogate Town take on Concord Rangers in the FA Trophy Final.
The day’s programming will conclude with Proud To Be Town, a documentary which highlights the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on football. Filmed and produced during lockdown, the film follows Harrogate Town FC’s return to play during the Vanarama National League play-offs and the club’s subsequent promotion to the Football League.
Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “Following a period when many lower league football fans have been unable to watch their sides, we hope our coverage will provide them with an opportunity to watch an exciting Non-League Finals Day live from Wembley Stadium. Our commitment to football at all levels of the game is resolute and continues through our recently-announced extension of Vanarama National League rights until 2024 and BT’s partnerships with each of the UK home nations football associations.”
