The National League schedules for the 2024/25 season are known

The highly anticipated National League schedule for the 2024/25 season has been announced and is causing many people to talk.

Football fans across the country are counting down the days until the start of the new season, which is set to be more exciting than ever.

Chesterfield won the 2023/24 title fairly early, finishing the season with 98 points from 46 games, 12 points ahead of second-placed Barnet. Bromley won the playoff final, beating Solihull in the final. Boreham Wood, Kidderminster, Dorking and Oxford City were relegated.

Forest Green Rovers and Sutton United have been relegated from the English Football League and will therefore try to return to League Two as soon as possible.

There are six new teams in the top division of the National League this season – Rochdale and Hartlepool United, who were relegated from the Football League, while playoff runners-up Chesterfield and Oldham Athletic are favourites for promotion.

Tamworth, Boston United, Yeovil Town and Braintree Town will be hoping to avoid relegation after being promoted from the fifth tier.

IMPORTANT NATIONAL LEAGUE DATES:

Key dates ahead of the 2024/25 Vanarama National League season have been confirmed.

The eagerly awaited new season begins on Saturday, August 10th.

The North and South Divisions end on Saturday, April 26th โ€“ the National Division ends nine days later on Monday, May 5th.

The bank holiday matches will take place on Saturday 21 December. Boxing Day matches will take place as usual. Matches will be rescheduled for New Year’s Day (Wednesday 1 January), although clubs may reschedule to New Year’s Day (Tuesday 31 December) if they agree.

Historically, the Christmas and New Year’s Day schedules are swapped, meaning Boxing Day matches are swapped with New Year’s Day matches, meaning the same team plays in a tight time frame.

After a survey of all clubs, the board of the National League has decided that next season the league will swap the fixtures from Boxing Day to Good Friday and New Year’s Day to Easter Monday.
