Both legs of the Scottish Championship Play-off final will be shown live on BBC Alba, the SPFL has announced.

The first left will take place on Wednesday, May 13, at 7.45 p.m. followed by the second leg on Sunday, May 17, at 5.30 p.m.

The first legs of the Scottish Championship Play-Off Semi-Finals took place last night with Alloa Athletic defeating Brechin City 2-0 at Glebe Park and Forfar Athletic striking late to seal a 3-0 home victory over Stranraer.

The second legs take place at the Indodrill Stadium and Stair Park on Saturday and the overall winners of both semi-finals will then meet on Wednesday, May 13, and Sunday, May 17, to determine which club will compete in next season’s Scottish Championship.

All 180 minutes of the final – plus possible extra-time and penalties – will be screened live on BBC ALBA as the channel continues its support for the Scottish game.

SPFL Chief Executive Neil Doncaster said: “The Scottish Championship Play-Off provided tremendous entertainment and drama last year and this season’s finale promises more of the same.

“The four teams involved have each enjoyed seasons full of great moments and we know one of them will emerge on Sunday week with a victory that will provide a real highlight of their campaign.

“The ongoing support of BBC ALBA to Scottish football and the Championship Play-Offs in particular is hugely valued by the SPFL and it’s great news that these games can be enjoyed by fans across the country.”

The team that finished highest ranked in the league out of the two semi-finalist will play at home in the second leg.
