Emirates FA Cup 2019 Final TV Preview
The Emirates FA Cup is one of the most popular tournaments in the world, with television audiences watching on six continents, and stadiums across England, Wales and Guernsey cheering on their favourite sides. The tournament utilises a knock-out format so there’s always a chance of a huge upset, and the prize money for reaching the Semis is quite lucrative with the winning side claiming $3.3million AUD for an added incentive. The winner of the FA Cup will also automatically qualify for the 2019-20 Europa League group stage. This year’s edition saw a total of 736 teams take part, and some five months later there’s just four clubs remaining to saviour the “Magic of the Cup”.
The four FA Cup Semi-finalist are Manchester City, Brighton, Watford and Wolverhampton, with the matches being held at Wembley Stadium this Saturday and Sunday. The 2019 chase for the FA Cup Final is all about Manchester City, League Cup winners and Premier League leaders, and their quest for a rare “Quadruple”. Manchester City faces Brighton & Hove in the earlier match, and are huge favourites to reach the tournament’s ultimate game for the first time in six years (2013). It hasn’t been easy for City though, as they had to come back from being two goals down to defeat Swansea last time out. The other match sees Watford take on the Wolverhampton Wanderers. Watford will be looking to reach their first Final in thirty-five years (1984), while the Wolves are playing in their first Semi in nearly twenty-years.
