The kick-off time was agreed after consultation with the Metropolitan Police, British Transport Police, the Safety Advisory Group and other key parties in the game.

Fans' ticketing allocations for the Emirates FA Cup Final will remain consistent with 2016. Last season The FA took the step of increasing the allocation of the two clubs competing in the Emirates FA Cup Final to approximately 28,000 fans each, equivalent to 80 per cent of the available seating.

As well as the ticket split between the two finalists, approximately 14,000 tickets will be distributed back into the game through the football family which includes volunteers representing counties, leagues, local clubs and charities.

As announced ahead of the quarter-finals, tickets for the Emirates FA Cup Final – reduced by £5 across all price points last year – are priced at £45, £65, £85 and £115 for adults. A concessions policy in conjunction with the competing clubs will apply for the match.

The stadium ends have also been allocated for both fixtures. Following the agreement of both clubs, Arsenal fans will occupy the east end of Wembley Stadium whilst Chelsea will be in the west end.
