There’s A London Showdown In The Vitality Women’s FA Cup Final, And We’ve Got The Tickets

While fans may pine for league titles and success in European competition, the rush of lifting the oldest trophy in the history of the English game is impossible to replicate. From the nervous excitement on the shuffle down Wembley Way right up until the final whistle, there isn’t a day out in the club football calendar with the same blend of tradition and prestige.

The Vitality Women’s FA Cup final this year couldn’t have presented a more exciting affair; as a fixture between two titans of the game awaits. A London matchup with a bitter rivalry sees a fight between north and west, as Arsenal take on Chelsea, at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, December 5. (Book your tickets through Fever here).


In the nail-biting leadup to kick-off, the moment will be marked by a roster of live entertainment. Fans will enjoy a headline act for a pre-match performance, including the National Anthem, alongside shows from the British Army Band Sandhurst. Pre and post-match sets from DJ CharStape are on the cards, with a fire and light show for the players and fans crowning the occasion.

Both teams have enjoyed immense success in recent seasons, so we can expect a spectacular clash. Arsenal have historical bragging rights, being the most successful English team in the women’s game with 15 league titles and 14 FA Cups. Chelsea, however, have won back-to-back Barclays FA Women’s Super League titles, and even reached the Champions League final in the previous campaign.

Last time the teams met saw Arsenal step away from their usual home turf of Borehamwood’s Meadow park, and into the Emirates Stadium for the opening game of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League campaign. A first half strike from Vivianne Miedema followed by a Beth Mead brace was enough to cancel out goals from Erin Cuthbert and Pernille Harder in a 3-2 victory for the reds.

It was also smooth sailing for the route into the final, with both clubs enjoying 3-0 victories in their respective semi-finals. Jonas Eidevall’s Arsenal saw off Brighton and Hove Albion, while Emma Hayes’ Chelsea dispatched Manchester City, the current holders of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup. With such a narrow result in their last face off and an equally strong entry into the final, it’s impossible to call the result of this historic fixture on the horizon. This is certainly not one to miss.
