The FA Cup Final

  • by arobis

The FA Cup Final takes place on the 11th May 2013 in Wembley Stadium. Wigan Athletic booked themselves a first-ever FA Cup Final appearance following a deserved 2-0 win over Millwall and in the final they will play Manchester City, who impressively knocked out holders Chelsea in a thrilling tie.

In a repeat of the semi-final against Millwall, Wigan will use the away dressing room and have been allocated the East end of the stadium. Manchester City won the coin toss to decide who would wear which kit and chose to wear their home kit. Wigan will play in their black away strip.

The 2013 Cup winners receive £1,800,000 from The FA Cup Prize Fund while the runners-up will earn £900,000.

The kick off for the match will be 5.15pm and will be subject to extra time and penalties if the score remains even at full time. The match could therefore finish approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes after kick off, if complete in 'normal' time, 2 hours and 20 minutes after kick off, if extra time is played, or up to 2 hours and 50 minutes after kick off if extra time and penalties are required.

Prepare for your trip to London by taking a look at some of the capitals finest Hotels and Restaurants.
