What about tickets?

Tickets will be distributed by each club for the final, details of which will be released by both finalists. Wembley hospitality packages are also available.

Last year, each club was granted 30,500 tickets each, with the other 29,000 designated for sponsors and corporate entities. This year’s allocation is yet to be confirmed. Fans are reminded to be aware of ticket touts, who resell tickets for massively inflated prices and are often times fake tender.
