Match officials, including VARs, appointed for our Emirates FA Cup semi-finals

Tuesday 14 Jul 2020

This weekend sees the 2020 Emirates FA Cup semi-finals take place at Wembley Stadium connected by EE.

While we've known the four teams who will be playing for a place in the Heads Up FA Cup Final since last month's quarter-final ties, we can now reveal the match official teams for both fixtures.

As with the quarter finals, teams at this stage of the competition can now name a maximum of nine substitutes in their matchday squad, but only FIVE may be used.

However, in the event that extra time is played should scores be level after 90 minutes, teams may use one additional substitute player (a sixth in total) from the nominated nine substitutes, during extra time.
