What is the FA Cup Final date and time?

Kick-off time for the Emirates FA Cup Final between Chelsea and Manchester United is set for 5.15pm on Saturday 19th May 2018.

Who are the officials for the event?

This year the referee for the event will be Michael Oliver from Ashington, Northumbria who has been an official for the premier league since 2010, FIFA listed since 2012 and in 2018 was listed as a UEFA Elite. Oliver will be assisted by Lee Betts and Ian Hussin, with Lee Mason the fourth official. Interestingly, it will be the first time a video assistant referee will be in attendence for a FA Cup Final (Neil Swarbrick) with Mick McDonough as the assistant VAR.

Why watch the FA Cup Final between Manchester United and Chelsea?

It’s been 11 years since both these teams competed against each other in the FA Cup final, that was back in 2007 at the old Wembly stadium. But with 90,000 seats available to be allocated it’s surely going to be an electric game to watch. Take for instance Manchester United, they’ve won the FA Cup 12 times, the last time they took the trophy home was in 2016. Chelsea on the other hand have only won the FA Cup 7 times, 2011-12 was their last.

What makes this game really interesting, is that although Chelsea are the current underdogs, both teams have been on fire winning consecutive games for the past month.

Who has the most to gain from winning the FA Cup Final on Saturday 19th May?

Chelsea. You see, they’ll qualify for the group stages of the 2018-19 UEFA Europa League, whereas Manchester United have already qualified because of their league position. But the winner of the 2018 FA Cup Final gets to play the Premier League chapions Manchester City for the 2018 FA Community Shield, and you know everyone loves a good derby.
