The end of the season is fast approaching and the campaign's traditional closing call of the FA Cup Final is almost upon us.

Manchester United will return to Wembley after defeating Tottenham 2-1 in the first of this season's semi-finals, with Jose Mourinho set to face his former side Chelsea in May's final.

United won the competition two years ago, and Mourinho will be confident of becoming only the third manager in history to win the competition with two different clubs.

Chelsea were beaten by Arsenal in the showpiece 12 months ago and Antonio Conte will be determined to put that right before his anticipated departure in the summer.

When and where is the final?

The 2017-18 FA Cup final will take place on May 19, 2018.

The match will be played at the Wembley Stadium, which will be the 12th final held at the new stadium.

Kick-off time is yet to be confirmed, but last year's final kicked off at 5.30pm. A late afternoon, early evening kick-off time is expected due to the Royal Wedding being held on the same day.

TV and live online coverage

BBC and BT Sport have shared coverage of the FA Cup throughout the season and will both broadcast the final.

We have not had confirmation, but expect BBC One and BT Sport 2 to be the designed channels.


Ticket allocation will be confirmed once the identify of the two teams competing in the final have been established.
