The 2006 Football League One play-off Final was a football match played at Millennium Stadium on 27 May 2006, at the end of the 2005–06 season. It was the second League One play-off final since the Football League's 2004 rebranding, the 20th play-off final in all at the third level of English football, and the last of these matches to take place at the Millennium Stadium. The match determined the third and final team to gain promotion from League One to the Championship, and was contested by Barnsley, who had finished fifth during the league season, and Swansea City, who had finished sixth. The teams reached the final by defeating Huddersfield and Brentford respectively in the two-legged semi-finals. Paul Hayes scored to give Barnsley the lead before Rory Fallon and Andy Robinson both scored to put Swansea in the lead. Daniel Nardiello scored to take the game to extra time and a penalty shoot-out, which Barnsley won 4-3.
