The Emirates FA Cup Final between Chelsea and Manchester United will kick-off at 5.15pm on Saturday 19 May, the Football Association has confirmed.
The Wembley showpiece will be refereed by Michael Oliver, who will be assisted by Lee Betts and Ian Hussin, with Lee Mason the fourth official.
Neil Swarbrick will be the first video assistant referee (VAR) in FA Cup Final history, with Mick McDonough the assistant VAR.
Meanwhile, ticket allocations are in line with last season, with each set of fans being allocated over 28,000 tickets. The figure represents approximately 80 per cent of the available seating.
The FA Cup final is always a special event, but there is even more riding on it this season when Manchester United meet Chelsea at Wembley. Neither side has won any silverware this season meaning the showpiece is their only chance to make the campaign a truly memorable one. It also seems highly likely that the contest will be Antonio Conte’s last as Chelsea manager, whilst a failure for Jose Mourinho would make united double runners up.
As well as the ticket split between the two Finalists, approximately 14,000 tickets will be distributed back into the game through the football family, which includes volunteers representing County FAs, FA affiliated leagues, clubs and charities.
Chelsea fans will occupy the east end of Wembley Stadium while Manchester United fans will be in the west end, determined by the travel requirements of the majority of each club’s supporters.
Fan parks will be installed externally at the respective ends of the stadium. The allocation of dressing rooms for each club also replicates the ends where their supporters will be gathered.
