This Saturday, defending champions Arsenal take on Aston Villa in the 2015 FA Cup Final. 736 teams entered the competition all the way back in August, and now just two remain. Should Arsenal lift the trophy, they’ll be the most successful team in FA Cup history, winning football’s oldest club competition for a record 12th time. For Aston Villa, victory this weekend will bring them their first trophy in 19 years.
Back in 1872, when the first FA Cup final was contested between Wanderers and Royal Engineers, roughly 2,000 spectators piled into London’s Kennington Oval to watch history unfold. 45 times that number will be in attendance at Wembley Stadium this Saturday, with a further half-a-billion watching around the world.
The game is scheduled to kick-off at 5:30 pm BST on Saturday May 30th. For a full breakdown of TV channels around the world showing Saturday’s game, click here.
