How to watch and follow the Women's FA Cup final

Tuesday 07 May 2024 14:00

Manchester United Women are set to take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley this weekend in the Adobe Women's FA Cup final.

Marc Skinner's side are bidding to go one better than last season's showpiece event, when we were narrowly defeated by Chelsea in front of a crowd of 77,390.

Having beaten Emma Hayes's side in the semi-final - and Newcastle United, Southampton and Brighton and Hove Albion in the earlier rounds - the Reds are ready to play at a sold-out national stadium for the second year in a row.

As we look forward to what should be another superb occasion for everyone involved, scroll down to find out all the key information.


Sunday's momentous occasion is set to be shown live on BBC One in the UK, with coverage scheduled to begin at 13:50 BST. Kick-off will then follow at 14:30 BST.

Our pre-match show on MUTV, and the United App will start at 14:00 BST, and will be followed by live radio commentary from Wembley.

Live coverage in the app and on our website will also include text updates, analysis and reaction throughout the afternoon.


Tickets for Sunday's game have now sold out. As always, we are grateful for your loyal support, up and down the country.


Reds defender Jayde Riviere returned to action during our 1-0 away defeat to Liverpool in the WSL, featuring for the final half-hour at Prenton Park.

Marc Skinner could provide an update on his squad later this week, when he holds his pre-match press conference.

In the meantime, Spurs manager Robert Vilahamn has no new fresh injury concerns to report after Saturday's 2-2 draw with Everton.

"I’m very much looking forward to the game," he replied, when asked about his focus now switching to the final.

"I can see the squad, and everyone is starting to prepare for it, and we are going to have a very good week, enjoy this week, and we will try to go for the trophy… it’s going to be amazing."

Regardless of who triumphs at Wembley, a new name will be etched onto the trophy. Tottenham have defied the odds to reach their first ever Women's FA Cup final, while United are involved for only the second time in our history.

Having beaten Sheffield United, Charlton Athletic, Manchester City and Leicester City en route, it has been quite the cup run for the North Londoners.

In the WSL, Spurs have enjoyed a steady season and are currently just one position behind United in the table, occupying sixth place with 28 points.

Impressively, our opponents this weekend have not lost in their last seven outings in all competitions, winning four and drawing three.

Top scorer and former Reds forward Martha Thomas is enjoying a solid campaign, having netted eight goals so far and will be someone Skinner's side will have to keep a keen eye on.
Martha Thomas was part of our squad that lost 1-0 to Chelsea in last year's Women's FA Cup final.

The Reds have faced Tottenham eleven times so far, starting with our 4-1 home win in the Women's Championship back in November 2018. We also won the away meeting that season, 5-1, and both sides were promoted to the WSL at the end of the campaign.

Our head-to-head record now stands at nine victories and two draws. The last encounter, just a few weeks ago, ended 2-2 with Melvine Malard and Maya Le Tissier scoring our goals at Leigh Sports Village.
