The match was due to take place in early April at Wembley Stadium in London. However, the game had to be postponed in light of the coronavirus pandemic, which led to all professional football being put on hold for three months in mid-March. The Premier League and the Championship eventually resumed in June to be completed on the pitch but behind closed doors with fans watching on TV or via streaming services from home. The campaigns in League One and League Two were both curtailed and tables decided on a points per game basis, with only the play-offs in each division taking place. More than 50,000 tickets have been sold for the game between the Ammies and Pompey, with no new concrete date for the match yet confirmed.
