The Premier League season may be over, but there is still plenty of football drama to be had this weekend, with both the Champions League and the Championship play-off finals set to take place.

While many eyes will be on Liverpool and Real Madrid on Saturday evening, attention will quickly turn to Wembley on Sunday afternoon, as Huddersfield and Nottingham Forest battle it out for promotion.

Fulham and Bournemouth have already confirmed their spots in the top flight by finishing in first and second respectively over the last season, with one last spot up for grabs in the Premier League 2022/23 season

Huddersfield – who were last in the Premier League in 2019 – booked a place in the final after beating Luton Town 2-1 on aggregate, while Nottingham Forest beat Sheffield United in a penalty shootout after the teams were all square after extra time in a tense semi-final.

The wait for a return to the top-flight football has been even longer for Nottingham Forest, who last played in the competition in the 1998/99 season.

There is a lot on the line for both teams but just when does the action kick off, and how can fans watch the game on TV in the UK?

How to get tickets to Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest

You can purchase tickets from both Forest and Huddersfield Town right now, via Ticketmaster.

However, when purchasing from the club you need to be able to demonstrate that you are already a match-going supporter on the club’s ticket office database.

If you can’t fulfil the conditions to buy directly from the club you can try and purchase tickets via the resale site livefootballtickets.com.

However, resale tickets are always more expensive than those which are sold by the club at face value.

If the odds are anything to go by, a return to the Premier League after over 20 years could well be on the cards for Nottingham Forest

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes told Metro.co.uk: ‘Momentum very much favours Nottingham Forest at the moment after a dramatic shootout victory and with a safe pair of hands in between the sticks, punters are seemingly convinced a return to the top-flight will be on the cards for Steve Cooper and co.’

The latest odds are as follows:

To win promotion

  • Nottingham Forest – 8/15
  • Huddersfield – 27/20

To win in 90 mins

  • Nottingham Forest – 11/10
  • Huddersfield – 13/5
  • Draw – 11/5
