Man City vs Man United: All you need to know about the 2023 FA Cup final

This year’s FA Cup final is a Manchester derby for the first time in the competition’s illustrious history.

Manchester City booked their place in the showpiece with a 3-0 victory against Sheffield United.

Then Manchester United joined them as they defeated Brighton on penalties after a goalless draw.

With the two outfits dreaming of glory and getting one over their closest rivals, we are on hand to reveal all that you need to know about the clash.

When is the 2023 FA Cup final?

The 142nd FA Cup final will be contested on Saturday, June 3.

Last season’s showpiece between Liverpool and Chelsea, was held on May 14 but this edition is taking place at a later date due to the season being stretched to accommodate the winter World Cup in Qatar.

The kick-off time has varied in recent years but the current edition will start at the traditional time of 3pm.

If needed, extra-time and a penalty shootout will follow the regular 90 minutes to determine a winner.

Where is the 2023 FA Cup final?

The 2023 final will take place at Wembley.

This match will mark the 100th anniversary since the first showpiece was held at the home of English football when Bolton beat West Ham in 1923.

The game was moved to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff for six seasons while the original stadium was knocked down and rebuilt, returning to London in 2007.

How can I get to the 2023 FA Cup final?

The majority of fans would normally use some form of rail travel to reach Wembley.

However, the travel plans for many supporters could be disrupted by the planned train drivers’ strike on June 3.

If it goes ahead, there will be no trains running between Manchester and London on the day of the game.

This would leave fans left with the option of travelling by car or coach, or elongating their trips to make their rail journeys on the days before and after the final.

Fans planning to watch the final at home will be spoilt for choice by the broadcast options.

The match will be shown in the UK on BBC One, BBC iPlayer, ITV, ITVX, UTV, STV and STV Player.

Football fans in other parts of the world should check local listings to determine broadcast and streaming options.
