An EFL spokesperson said:

“After full and comprehensive consultation with all relevant stakeholders, including the three other clubs involved, it has been determined that the Papa John’s Trophy final fixture(s) will remain as scheduled.

“Detailed discussions took place on a number of potential alternatives, including splitting the two finals, changing the future fixture schedule, or moving the fixture(s) away from Wembley Stadium.

“However the logistical, operational and financial challenges meant that on balance those were not viable solutions.”
