The finals will took place on 3rd June Saturday. The location of the FA Cup final.
Final will be played on Wembley Stadium in London.
When does the FA Cup final begin?
For the first time in more than ten years, the FA Cup final will begin off at 7:30 p.m. as usual after a “high-risk” game.
Although it is believed that security and logistical considerations are the primary factors influencing decisions for the inaugural Manchester derby final, an earlier kick-off will also gratify the 170-mile-distance travelling supporters of both clubs.
Due to club football being postponed this season to make room for a winter World Cup, the final will now take place in June rather than the customary mid-May timeframe.
This results in a date conflict with the Epsom Derby, which will now begin at 1.30 before the FA Cup final and will also be shown on ITV.
Who is the game’s referee?
Paul Tierney, a referee, has been given the post.
The 42-year-old is believed to be a supporter of Wigan Athletic and is from Wigan in Greater Manchester. He has been a target for Jürgen Klopp this season, despite the Liverpool boss later retracting his harsh criticism of Tierney, and the Football Association’s decision demonstrates how highly they regard the referee.
Tierney will have help from referees Neil Davies, Scott Ledger, and Peter Banks. Alongside Simon Long, video assistant referee David Coote will oversee the League Cup final.
- This is Manchester City and Manchester United’s first-ever big final.
- Most recent victory for Manchester United over Manchester City in the FA Cup was a 3-2 away victory in January 2012. The lone exception to that run was Man City’s semi-final triumph in 2010–11.
- This will be United’s and City third encounter at Wembley Stadium; the first two occurred in 2011. Red Devils triumphed 3-2 in the Community Shield, the Citizens prevailed 1-0 in their FA Cup semifinal match.
- Together with Arsenal, United has appeared in the most FA Cup Finals (21 total) in the competition’s history. They’ve won the title 12 times, and along with Chelsea and Everton, they have lost eight championship games.
- After winning the Premier League, City may go on to win both the league and FA Cup, which would mark the second time in team history. After Arsenal (1970–71, 1997–98, 2001–02) and Manchester United (1993–94, 1995–96, 1998–99), they would be the third team to accomplish it on more than one time.
- This is City’s 12th FA Cup final overall, with six victories and five defeats in the first eleven. In their previous four games, they’ve alternated between losing and winning, most recently defeating Watford 6-0 in 2019.
