Over 500 clubs entered The FA Vase this season while 276 took part in The FA Trophy. 

North Ferriby United beat Wrexham 5-4 on penalties in March to win the Trophy for the first time in their history. 

And on Saturday over 10,000 fans are expected at Wembley Stadium to see Glossop North End and North Shields battle it out for the Vase.

The FA’s Director of National Game, Kelly Simmons MBE, said: “We’re lucky to have a fantastic non-League football culture in this country. 

"Having both The FA Trophy and Vase Finals on the same day will not only celebrate two great competitions but provide real value for money for fans and neutral supporters who want to be a part of an historical first for Wembley Stadium. 

“Both competitions are over 40 years old and we’ve always been committed to hosting the Finals at Wembley Stadium.

“BT Sport has backed up that commitment by broadcasting this season’s FA Trophy Final live and will show highlights of Saturday’s Vase Final. 

“There’s no doubt that next season’s Trophy and Vase campaigns will be the biggest ever with a place in the double header at stake.” 

The FA will announce more details around The FA Trophy and Vase Finals double-header next season.
