Follow the Blues on FA Cup final day with Matchday Live and brand-new Cup Final Fest online shows

All you need to know about how to follow Chelsea in the Heads Up FA Cup final from home on Saturday...

The 2020 FA Cup final is set to be like no other in the competition’s 148-year history, with the showpiece occasion held behind closed doors and without fans in the ground for the first time.

That means there will be no fanzone at Wembley this year either but rather than miss out on all the usual fun and entertainment, we’ve decided to host Cup Final Fest online instead!

Live from a rooftop at Stamford Bridge, the event will be hosted by renowned DJ, presenter and Chelsea fan Trevor Nelson along with Out of the Blue’s Portia Ferrari, and will feature fantastic headline acts such as exclusives with Didier Drogba, NBA champion Larry Nance Junior and Arjun Kapoor, Bollywood star and brand ambassador for India.

Joining Trevor and Portia in the studio will be actress Emilia Fox and McFly’s Danny Jones, a current judge on The Voice Kids who will be giving his verdict on some songs sent in by Junior Blues!

Alongside that thrilling line-up of Chelsea favourites, there will be exclusive competitions running throughout the show as well as live music and giveaways including the money-can’t-buy prize of a match-issued shirt from the FA Cup final.

You can tune into the action-packed show on Facebook Live or YouTube from 3pm this Saturday 1 August and kick off your Cup final afternoon in style! Click here to register your interest. 

Following Cup Final Fest, we’ll be direct from Wembley with Matchday Live, also on Facebook Live as well as the 5th Stand app from 4.15pm with exclusively blue-tinted build-up to the game, featuring pre-match chat and live reaction to the team news as it is announced, as well as exclusive interviews with Christian Pulisic, Olivier Giroud and Petr Cech.

Gus Poyet, top scorer when the Blues were FA Cup winners 20 years ago, and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink will also be special guests on the show.

Capital FM’s Joe Flemons and Jason Cundy will be reporting live from Wembley, while Lee Parker will be on hand as ever to bring you any pre-match chat with the players.

As the match gets underway, the regular line-up of Zac Djellab, Savage Dan, Pat Nevin and Claire Rafferty will be in the studio guiding you through every kick of the action exclusively on the 5th Stand app. After the game, there will also be reaction with Frank Lampard and the players pitchside from Wembley.

So for all your Cup final needs this weekend, we’ve got you covered.
