A limited edition matchday programme for the Heads Up FA Cup Final has been produced

Emirates FA Cup fans and supporters of both Arsenal and Chelsea can read a digital version of our matchday programme for the Heads Up FA Cup Final.

This year’s Final is being staged behind closed doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we want Cup Final day to be as close to normal as possible for everyone.

Our regular programme for the showpiece fixture was produced, and with the printed version now sold out, a digital version is now available to read.

The cover for the Heads Up FA Cup Final

There’s plenty of focus on Arsenal and Chelsea, from both inside and out of the camp as well a look back at how the competition has progressed this season in terms of key moments and a collection of the best photos.

This season’s programme also features an illustrated history of the FA Cup and a list of every result from this season, right from the extra preliminary round last August through to the Final itself.

With this season’s Final dedicated to our Heads Up campaign, promoting mental health awareness, there’s a strong essence on this topic throughout.

We hear from former players of both clubs in Tony Adams and Emmanuel Petit, who open up on their mental health battles while we also meet supporters from both teams who talk about their own personal journey through the season.

There’s also a look at the highs and lows of the FA Cup Final and how those contrasting emotions can take their toll on an individual’s state of mind, with some key Cup Final figures from down the years.

There'll be no programmes on sale at Wembley on FA Cup Final day this year, but you can pre-order a copy online

Following the COVID-19 pandemic, we meet some of the medical staff who will be working at Wembley on Cup Final day on the back of a busy few months in their day jobs with the NHS.

We also focus on both clubs’ young players, featuring the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Joe Willock, Christian Pulisic, Rob Holding and Reiss Nelson.
