FA Cup final kick-off time confirmed

The 2023 FA Cup final will kick off at the traditional time of 3pm, the Football Association has confirmed.

The main game on June 3 is a Manchester derby for the first time in the competition’s 151-year history.

The clash of the North West rivals led the Metropolitan Police to consider it a high risk match and to insist on a kick-off time of no later than 4.45pm.

On Wednesday afternoon, the FA confirmed a 3:00pm kick-off time, the first time the final has been a 3:00pm kick-off since 2011.

The FA confirmed that the winners would receive £2 million in prize money, with the losing finalists taking £1 million.
