Crystal Palace seek their first trophy in the 111-year history of the club in the FA Cup final against Manchester United. Palace have struggled against United, going winless against the club since 2011.
United manager Louis van Gaal may need the FA Cup trophy to keep his job, which brings on memories of the 1990 FA Cup final. That’s when Alex Ferguson needed his first trophy as United manager to save his job. His opponent? Crystal Palace. He went on to have a pretty good run with the club, totaling 38 trophies by the time he left Old Trafford.
Kickoff is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. ET, and it will be broadcast on Fox in the US and BT Sport in the UK. If you can’t get to a TV, here’s a complete roundup of the available live stream options:
