FA Cup final ticket prices reduced

Wembley Stadium

The FA Cup final has been staged at the new Wembley Stadium since 2007

The Football Association has reduced ticket prices by £5 across all ranges for the FA Cup final and semi-finals.

Tickets for the final at Wembley on 21 May will start at £45, excluding concessions, and semi-final tickets will begin at £30.

An FA statement said that they were able to cut prices because of “a good financial position”.

Liverpool recently scrapped their top-priced £77 tickets for next season after fans took part in protests.

The club’s owners apologised for the “distress caused” by their pricing announcement in response to supporters walking out after 77 minutes of the 2-2 Premier League draw against Sunderland at Anfield on 6 February.

Ticket charges for the FA Cup semi-final matches, which will take part on 23 and 24 April, will revert to 2014 prices.

The FA statement read: “So far, this season’s competition has seen attendances close to two million and £13m distributed to clubs across the football pyramid.

“The FA is in a good financial position and lowering the cost of these showpiece matches is in recognition of the strong, continued commitment from fans supporting the world’s original cup competition.”
