FA CUP 2017-18 - BBC Sport

The 2021 FA Cup final will take place today as Chelsea face Leicester City at Wembley Stadium.

The match will be shown live on the BBC and BT Sport.

The Blues have won this competition on eight occasions, with six of those triumphs coming since the turn of the Millennium, most recently in 2018 when they overcame Manchester United 1-0 in the final.

In contrast, the Foxes have never lifted the trophy and this is the first time they have played in the final since 1969.

The coverage on the BBC gets underway at 4.15pm on BBC One and BBC One HD, where Gary Lineker is joined in the studio by Alan Shearer and Ian Wright.

Jake Humphrey will front BT Sport’s coverage from 3.00pm in the company of former winners Joe Cole and Emile Heskey, with Rio Ferdinand and Michael Owen also on hand.

Des Kelly and Jules Breach will be interviewing players and managers for pre and post-match reaction, while Ian Darke leads the commentary alongside Robbie Savage and Glenn Hoddle.

Former Premier League referee Peter Walton will also join the BT crew to help guide any discussion about the officiating.

Kick-off 5.15pm.

Highlights will air on BBC One from 11.20pm this evening.
