FA Cup Final Date And Kick-Off Time

Arsenal and Chelsea are set to face off at Wembley next month where Mikel Arteta and Frank Lampard will both be looking to secure their first trophy as a manager.

The FA Cup final between the two teams is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 1 at 5.30pm.

The match will be broadcast on BT Sport and BBC One with the showpiece event being played behind closed doors.

Arsenal booked their spot in the final with a convincing 2-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday.

Arteta got one over his old boss Pep Guardiola with a tactical masterclass as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck twice.

A day later Chelsea pulled off a 3-1 win against Manchester United with David De Gea suffering a nightmare in front of goal after his Mason Mount howler.

On playing Chelsea in the final, Arteta said: “Well, I was interested to see how they were going to play and obviously the formation and players that they picked.

“It was a really good game with very different moments, I believe.
