Wembley could welcome small number of fans for FA Cup final – but only on one condition | Football | Sport

Earlier this week, the FA announced plans for its quarter-finals to take place on the weekend of June 27-28.

The semi-finals will then be held at Wembley on July 18-19 with the final two weeks’ later.

The FA’s chief executive officer Mark Bullingham said: “We are pleased to agree the provisional restart date for the 2019-20 Emirates FA Cup.

“The competition has been an integral part of the English football calendar for nearly 150 years, and we’d like to thank the Premier League executive and clubs for their support in scheduling the remaining matches during this unprecedented time.

“This has been a difficult period for many people and, while this is a positive step, the restart date is dependent on all safety measures being met. The health and wellbeing of players, staff and supporters remains our priority.”

The last eight of the FA Cup is made up entirely of Premier League teams, with the quarters having been drawn back on March 9.

Leicester City are due to host Chelsea, with Newcastle taking on the holders of the competition, Manchester United.

Arsenal travel to Sheffield United while Norwich City welcome Manchester United.

All of the matches are to be held at the grounds of the home teams.
