The Football Association has confirmed all details for the upcoming Heads Up FA Cup final match between Arsenal and Chelsea.

The 139th final will take place on Saturday 1 August, kicking-off at 5:30 pm BST (7:30 pm EAT), at Wembley Stadium and will be broadcast live on both BBC One and BT Sport 1.

Referee Anthony Taylor will take charge of the match, assisted by Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn, fourth official Chris Kavanagh, and reserve assistant referee Lee Betts.

Stuart Attwell will be the video assistant referee and will be joined at Stockley Park by assistant VAR Steve Child.

Taylor previously refereed the 2017 Emirates FA Cup final between the two sides, a match in which Arsenal won 2-1.

The final will be dedicated to Heads Up, after the competition’s lead partner, Emirates, donated their title to the campaign.

Arsenal were the first to qualify after a 2-0 win over defending champions Manchester City on Saturday, before Frank Lampard’s Chelsea beat Man United 3-1 to sail to the final.
