The end of the Premier League season gives away to the world’s oldest cup competition this weekend, the FA Cup Final. The FA Cup Final will be watched by millions this Saturday as Chelsea meets Manchester United.

About the 2018 FA Cup

After months of competition between hundreds of teams, Chelsea and Manchester United are the two clubs left standing to meet at Wembley Stadium on May 19th at 5:15 PM local time.

The matchup represents the first time the two clubs have played in the FA Club Final since 1994. Chelsea hopes to make up for their defeat last year in the 2017 FA Cup Final, when they lost 2-1 against Arsenal.

There is a lot at stake besides the trophy. In addition to the Cup, Chelsea must win the match to qualify for the group stage of the UEFA Europe League. Manchester United have already qualified for the UEFA Champions League through their position in the English Premier League.

Football fans can tune into the action on BT Sport and the BBC.

How does the FA work?

The FA Cup is a unique event for football in that the competition is available to all eligible clubs down to Level 10 in English football. Each year, hundreds of teams compete from the Premier League, English Football League as well as the National League system and non-league teams in levels 1-6.

The first six rounds are held through the Qualifying Competition. From the Qualifying round, 32 teams qualify for Competition Proper and meet the 48 teams from Leagues One and League Two.

Despite the inclusion of 10 levels of the English Football, only one team not from a league has ever reached the quarter-final finals and a team outside of Level 2 has never reached the finals.

This year’s final between Chelsea and Manchester United will feature some heavyweights of the Premier League. Which one do you think will come out on top?
