The Football Conference have announced a new format for their play-offs in the Conference Premier and North and South divisions - starting next season.

Under the new system, teams who finish second and third will automatically go into the single-leg semi-finals at their home ground, while teams in fourth and fifth will host the teams in sixth and seventh in another single-leg game.

The winners of those games then complete the semi-final line-up, with the final being played at the club who finished highest.
