Arsenal and Chelsea supporters allocated 28,000 tickets for next month's FA Cup final at Wembley

The Football Association have announced key information for next month’s FA Cup final, with Arsenal and Chelsea both allocated 28,000 tickets for the match at Wembley Stadium.

Arsenal supporters have been allocated the east side of the ground while Chelsea’s supporters will sit in the west end.

The remaining 14,000 tickets not handed to either club will be given to members of the FA’s “football family” – which includes volunteers representing counties, leagues, local clubs and charities.

The FA also announced that tickets will be slightly cheaper than in 2016, with a £5 reduction across all price points. That means adult tickets are priced at £45, £65, £85 and £115.

The match will kick-off at 5.30pm on May 27, with live coverage of the game on BBC One as well as BT Sport 2.


Arsenal will be attempting to win the competition for the third time in just four seasons, following their wins over Hull City and Aston Villa in 2014 and 2015 respectively.

Arsene Wenger’s side defeated Manchester City to reach the final, with Alexis Sanchez scoring in the first-half of extra-time to ensure that Pep Guardiola would end the league season without a trophy for the first-time in his storied career.

Chelsea meanwhile defeated Tottenham Hotspur 4-2 in the other semi-final.

The London club will likely be aiming to complete the double for only the second time in their history when they line-up against Arsenal next month.
