The 2022/23 Women's FA Cup is almost over, with only the final now left to play.

This season's final will be the ninth held at Wembley Stadium since the competition's showpiece was first played at the home of English football in 2015.

The final attendance peaked at 49,000 last season shortly before Euro 2022 marked another watershed moment for the development of women's football in the UK. As a result, the 2023 final is already expected to be record-breaking.

Teams in the Women's FA Cup final

Manchester United have reached the Women's FA Cup final for the first time, having never previously gone any further than the quarter-finals - the last time they did that was in 2019.

Marc Skinner's side have made the most of a favourable run, seeing off three Championship clubs in Sunderland, Durham and Lewes, before overcoming Brighton with a late goal in the semis.

Chelsea are in the final for the third year running and are hoping to make it three wins in a row after beating Arsenal in the delayed 2021 final and seeing off Manchester City last season.

Emma Hayes' Blues have exclusively faced WSL opposition throughout the rounds this season, beating Liverpool, Arsenal, Reading and Aston Villa to reach this point again.

When is the Women's FA Cup final?

This season's Women's FA Cup final will be on Sunday 14 May 2023, with kick-off at 14:30 (BST).

Where to watch the Women's FA Cup final on TV/live stream

In the UK, the 2023 Women's FA Cup final will be broadcast live on BBC platforms. On television, that will be BBC One, with BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website for online viewing.

The FA Player will offer a free live stream for many international audiences.

How to buy Women's FA Cup final tickets

Each club has been given an official allocation of just under 8,000 tickets that will be sold directly by them, initially prioritising season ticket holders before any general sale.

Information on Manchester United's allocation can be found here, and Chelsea's here.

The FA has already been selling neutral tickets for some time and sales reached 65,000 in mid-April. Tickets could well sell out Wembley's 90,000 capacity, which could make the game a world record for a domestic women's football match.

Tickets are priced between £15 and £30 for adults, £5 for children and £10 for seniors and students. Bulk discount is also available for large groups of nine or more people.

Tickets can be purchased from the official Wembley Stadium website.

What is the prize money for the Women's FA Cup final

Just for reaching the Women's FA Cup final, both Manchester United and Chelsea have already pocketed £110,000 in prize money by winning the previous rounds. But even with an inflated prize fund this season, that figure still pales into insignificance compared to the men's competition.

By playing in the final, each team is guaranteed another £50,000 at least, with the winner to receive £100,000. Whoever lifts the trophy will have taken home £210,000 in total from the competition this season, with the runners-up on £160,000.
