The SSE Airtricity First Division play-off final between Bray Wanderers and UCD has been fixed for Friday November 19 at Dalymount Park (kick-off at 7.45pm).

The winner of this one off play-off final will earn their place in the promotion/relegation play-off final against the team who finishes ninth in the Premier Division. The victorious team in that match will play in the top flight in the 2022 season. 

Waterford currently are in that ninth position with Finn Harps level on 40 points with the Blues but with a better goal difference of seven with two games remaining. Drogheda United are four points clear of the pair.

Both Waterford and Finn Harps face Longford Town and St. Patrick's Athtletic in their remaining two matches.

Bray overcame Galway United in their semi-final (1-0 on aggregate) while UCD defeated Treaty United (4-2 on aggregate) to earn their spot in the game in Dalymount Park.

The FAI also confirmed that the First Division play-off final will be live on LOITV for First Division season pass holders or available on a pay-per-view basis.
