The Northern Ireland Football League confirmed that the decision had been reached "following agreement between both clubs".
A spokesman added: "By making this decision, a greater number of fans can now attend the match and celebrate the Danske Bank Premiership trophy presentation."
Cliftonville sealed the league with a 2-0 win over Portadown at Shamrock Park on Tuesday and created a piece of club history by winning back-to-back titles for the first time.
On Wednesday evening, Reds manager Tommy Breslin appeared in the UTV Live studio to talk to sports presenter Ruth Gorman about the huge achievement.
"I'm really just so pleased for everybody to do with the club - the players, the fans, the board. But really, it's all about the fans," he said.
"We've brought so much joy to north Belfast and hopefully we can continue with that."
Prediction is maybe a bit strong – it was more bravado on my part, hoping that it wouldn’t go down to the last game of the season.

In a statement, the club later said that it had "acceded to a request by Crusaders" to host what will be both sides final game of the season at Solitude.
Speaking after a meeting of the Crusaders Board, Stephen Bell said: "Demand for tickets have been significant for what is now a celebratory event. However, demand has the potential to breach the Crusaders Football Club Safety Certificate.
"Following consultations with Cliftonville and relevant safety advisors, it was agreed to switch the match to Solitude.
"Crusaders Football Club see this as a 'one-off' solution to a 'one-off' problem. No League competition issues arise and no precedent is being set.
"We look forward to accommodating all who wish to attend what we expect to be a family and community day out."
The league trophy will be presented to Cliftonville afterwards.
Tickets already purchased remain valid, while additional tickets will be released for the game which is set to kick-off at 3pm on Saturday.
