Carabao Cup final 2023 tickets: Prices for Wembley decider & where to buy
Manchester United and Newcastle United will contest the 2022/23 Carabao Cup final with the first piece of English domestic silverware this season up for grabs.
The match will take place at Wembley on February 26 and both sets of fans will travel down to London in their droves in order to hopefully see their team lift the trophy.
United are without a trophy win since 2017, while Newcastle's last domestic trophy success - outside of winning the Championship in 2016/17 - came way back in 1955.

How much is a Carabao Cup final ticket?
Ticket prices for the big match have been finalised with both Man Utd and Newcastle alerting their fans to the news.
Tickets have been sold through the club and fans have had to fulfil certain criteria to qualify to buy tickets.
£100 (adult), £75 (young adult), £50 (concessions)
£90 (adult), £67.50 (young adult), £45 (concessions)
£72 (adult), £54 (young adult), £36 (concessions)
£56 (adult), £42 (young adult), £28 (concessions)
£40 (adult), £30 (young adult), £20 (concessions)
The Carabao Cup may be regarded as the second-rate domestic cup competition when compared to the FA Cup, but it is certainly a trophy that both sets of fans will be desperate to win. With the cheapest adult ticket being £40, it will certainly be a pricey day out with travel and possible accommodation included.
Where can you buy a Carabao Cup ticket?
There are going to be a lot of disappointed people. The tickets for the match will be sold by the clubs themselves and almost the entirety of each allocation is expected to be taken up by season ticket holders who opted into the cup schemes, and then other season ticket holders.
The chances of any non-season ticket holders managing to get a non-corporate/sponsor ticket is incredibly low. United confirmed that the ticket information will be on their club website from 23:00 GMT on Wednesday February 7.
They also released a statement to say: "Applications will be accepted from 08:00 GMT on Friday 3 February until the same time on Wednesday 7 February, from Executive Club members, Wheelchair-User Season-Ticket holders and Full Season-Ticket holders (including Amenity Season-Ticket holders), who have a ticket for all home cup games (including those who forwarded or donated where applicable)."
As for Newcastle, there is a chance that they will mirror Liverpool's system by giving first dibs to those who had attended at least three games from a selection of its Carabao Cup fixtures. That means fans who fit that criterion, as well as members and season ticket holders, will be occupying the Newcastle end.
Each club has been allocated 33,000 tickets from the 90,000-capacity Wembley Stadium, but a chunk of that figure will be taken up by each club for corporate seats, VIPs and the media.
How to watch the Carabao Cup final on TV and live stream
In the United Kingdom, those who missed out on a ticket will be able to watch the game on Sky Sports at 16:30 GMT. There will be highlights after the game on both the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel and the EFL Cup channel.
TV channels are not yet finalised for the likes of the United States of America, Canada and Australia, but the game is expected to be shown live all over the world.
