The Adobe Women's FA Cup

Final four discover who they will face in the Adobe Women’s FA Cup semi-final

Tuesday 12 Mar 2024

The draw for the Adobe Women’s FA Cup semi-final was made live on BBC 5 Live on Tuesday morning.

It was conducted by BBC presenter Rachel Burden and former England goalkeeper Rachel Brown-Finnis, who earned 82 caps for the Lionesses and her achievements included attending two World Cups and the 2012 Olympic Games.

Reigning champions Chelsea, who are looking to win a fourth consecutive Women’s FA Cup, will be travelling to Manchester United, while Tottenham Hotspur will be hosting Leicester City.

The games will take place across the weekend of Saturday 13 April and Sunday 14 April, with the victorious teams landing £160,000 from the prize fund, with those defeated still receiving £40,000.

Both Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City have already made history by reaching this stage of the competition following victories over Manchester City and Liverpool respectively, meaning there will be a team making their first Women's FA Cup final this season.

As for Chelsea and Manchester United, they were the two finalists in last season’s Women’s FA Cup, which was only decided by Sam Kerr’s second-half goal.

The 2024 Adobe Women’s FA Cup final will take place at Wembley Stadium connected by EE once again on Sunday 12 May.

All general admission tickets for the final have been sold, although hospitality packages remain available.

However, a proportion of tickets have been reserved to be allocated to the two finalists and will go on sale on April 15 following the semi-finals. 

Both finalists will have an allocation of 12,000 tickets to sell, which is a 50 per cent uplift on the allocation for last season’s finalists and is higher than the average attendances in the Barclays Women’s Super League and Barclays Women’s Championship.
