The National League play-off promotion final will still kick off at Wembley Stadium despite the absence of supporters.
The ninth consecutive final to take place at the home of football on Sunday 2 August was confirmed by the National League on Thursday.
Due to the current government sporting guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic, the 3pm kick-off will be played behind closed doors.
According to a league statement, BT Sport will broadcast the showpiece final, along with each of the five play-off games in the Vanarama National League.
