How to watch the 2024 FA Cup final: TV info, streaming options, live commentary

Don’t miss the FA Cup final this weekend as Manchester United take on Man City in a repeat of last year’s final hoping for a better outcome.

You are in the right place if it’s TV channel information, radio coverage, and live text commentary is what you’re after.

City, who beat United 2-1 at Wembley last year following an Ilkay Gundogan brace, are hoping to claim victory over the Reds three times in the same season for the first time since 1969-70.

Pep Guardiola’s side are eyeing a double after winning their fourth consecutive Premier League title last weekend.

The spirits are high at the Etihad, but it’s a completely different story at Old Trafford, where managerial uncertainty is weighing down on the lead-up to the final. It only adds more pressure to the occasion and United are already underdogs with good reason.
