The Carabao Cup final was delayed until April 25 in an attempt to be able to welcome fans to Wembley to watch the match, the EFL announced.
The game was to be played on February 28.
Confirming the decision, the EFL said: “The number of fans allowed will depend on government guidance in effect at the time and moving the date later in the year is expected to give clubs and their fans the best chance to attend in person. “
The decision follows the introduction of new level four restrictions across much of the South East and East of England over the weekend.
At levels three and four, spectators cannot attend games.
The quarterfinals of the competition are played on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.
Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham, Everton, Manchester United, Newcastle, Stoke and Brentford are the remaining teams left in the competition.
The final will begin at 4 pm, the EFL has said.
