This year’s FA Cup finalists, Liverpool and Chelsea, have already competed in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley this season, as the Reds defeated the Blues 11-10 on penalties following a 0-0 draw after extra time in front of a crowd of 85,512. Who is your favourite to win the 2022 FA Cup final?

One of the biggest events in the football calendar takes place this weekend when the FA Cup final will be played at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, May 14, with Liverpool and Chelsea going head-to-head.

For the 2020 and 2021 FA Cup final', the Royal Box was not used for the presentation of the trophy due to Covid-19 health and safety restrictions, meaning that the players had to collect their medals and trophy on the pitch instead, and missed out on walking up those famous Wembley steps.

Walking up the famous Wembley steps is one of the most prestigious parts of the trophy presentation, as this is how they access the Royal Box to collect their prize at the end of the game, and players are seen doing this at the end of every cup final.

But it also represents itself as the venue to hold big footballing occasions such as cup finals, with the last game of the Carabao Cup and FA Cup taking place here every season, along with the annual season opener which is the FA Community Shield, amongst others.

For every trophy that is lifted at Wembley Stadium, it is done so in the famous Royal Box and presentation area, which is a major feature of every cup final day that is held at the stadium.

The Reds have already defeated the Blues in the Carabao Cup final at the same venue earlier in the season, and now have a second opportunity to walk up that big flight of stairs to lift another trophy in the famous presentation area of the stadium.
