FA Cup Final: Date, history & odds

The 2023 FA Cup final takes place at 15:00 on 3rd June and will be contested by fierce rivals Manchester City and Manchester United.

The trophy has not been lifted by the same team in consecutive seasons since Arsenal did so in 2014 and 2015.

Liverpool are the current holders, following a penalty shootout success over Chelsea in 2021/22, winning the competition for the eighth time.

When is the FA Cup 2022/23 final?

The FA Cup final usually takes place in May, but due to the interruption of domestic football for the World Cup in Qatar, it has been pushed back to 3rd June this season - six days after the Premier League concludes.

Manchester City, who beat Sheffield United 3-0 in the semi-finals, will face Manchester United in the first all-Manchester FA Cup final. United edged past Brighton on penalties after their semi-final had finished goalless after extra-time.

Where is the FA Cup 2022/23 final?

The FA Cup final will be played at Wembley Stadium in north-west London, which is owned by the Football Association.

This year's final will be the 17th consecutive time the FA Cup final has been played at the new Wembley Stadium, which opened in 2007 on the site of the original Wembley Stadium which was demolished from 2002 to 2003.

From 2001 to 2006, the FA Cup final was held at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, with Liverpool beating West Ham on penalties after a dramatic 3-3 draw between the two sides in the last of those.
