The Football Association has confirmed that this season’s FA Cup with Budweiser Final between Chelsea and Liverpool will kick-off at 5.15pm on Saturday 5 May.
It will be the first FA Cup Final under floodlights at Wembley Stadium in almost 20 years – the last being Arsenal’s replay win over Sheffield Wednesday in 1993 when a last-minute header from Andy Linighan in extra-time sealed a 2-1 victory for the Gunners.
This year’s Final is the competition’s 131st but the first time that Chelsea and Liverpool will have met in the Wembley showpiece despite sharing a massive 43 FA Cup Semi-Final appearances between them.
Liverpool will be aiming for their second domestic trophy on Wembley soil this season having won the League Cup on penalties against Cardiff City earlier in the year.
Until this year, the Anfield giants hadn’t appeared at Wembley at all since it re-opened for business in 2007, but they were a regular staple under the old Twin Towers. The Reds have seven FA Cup triumphs to their name, the first came under the great Bill Shankly in 1965, while Rafa Benitez was the last Liverpool manager to bring the trophy back to Merseyside, beating West Ham United on penalties at the Millennium Stadium six years ago.
The new Wembley Stadium has been something of a home-from-home for Chelsea with next month’s Final their fourth under the arch. The Stamford Bridge side were the first club to win The FA Cup at the new stadium when Didier Drogba scored an extra-time winner against Manchester United in 2007.
