Football fans gathered from the afternoon onwards to watch the men’s team kick off across the BBC and ITV.
Taking place in Wembley Stadium, the match preempted another day of top league football for the women’s teams this weekend.
But just who is playing in the Women’s final, and can you watch it on TV?
Who is playing in the Women’s FA Cup final?
The Women’s FA Cup final will see the women’s teams for Chelsea and Manchester City go head to head to lift the trophy.
This will be a double bill for Chelsea FC playing both FA Cup final’s across the weekend with both their men’s and women’s teams.
Chelsea’s women’s team have just come from winning the Women’s Super League title last Sunday. Meanwhile, Manchester City are going for their fourth FA Cup win and second trophy this year after the Continental League Cup back in March.
Chelsea made it through to the FA final by beating Arsenal by 2-0 at the semi-finals. Manchester City qualified to the FA Cup Final by defeating West Ham in their semi-finals with 4-1.
What time is kick-off?
The women’s final will kick-off from 2.30pm in the afternoon of Sunday May 15.
Similarly to the men’s FA Cup Final, the women’s final will be played in Wembley Stadium.
This will be the first time that both teams are meeting in the final after either Chelsea or Manchester City have been the victorious FA Cup champions for the past five finals.
How to watch it on TV
The Women’s FA Cup Final will be shown live on BBC One on Sunday May 15 from kick-off time at 2.30pm.
This will be the first time that both men’s and women’s FA Cup Finals are played and covered across the same weekend.
What are the latest odds?
Ladbrokes have released their latest odds for the women’s final.
