When are the FA Cup semi-finals?

Arsenal vs Man City is on Saturday, July 18 at 7.45pm.

This match will be live on BT Sport.

Chelsea vs Man Utd is on Sunday, July 19 at 6pm.

This match will be live on BBC One.

Wembley Stadium will host both semi-finals.

Heads Up

This year the FA Cup will be known as the Heads Up FA Cup Final, with sponsor Emirates donating their title.

FA president Prince William said of the naming: “We’re going to really use the Final as a moment to promote good, positive mental health for everyone.

“It’s quite timely bearing in mind what we’ve all been through with this pandemic. I think there’s going to be, sadly, a lot of repercussions from this in society, not just in football, in terms of people’s mental health. Hopefully the FA Cup can be a bit of a pivot that people can rally around.”
