FA Cup kick-off delay to cause public transport chaos
This year’s FA Cup Final kick-off has been postponed to a later time, causing potential travel difficulties for both Manchester City and Wigan fans travelling back from the match in Wembley. The time of kick-off is now 5:15pm on Saturday 11 th May instead of its traditional 3 o’clock, and will now instead finish at approximately 7:15pm instead of 5. It’s the second time the match slot has been pushed back – it happened last year with Chelsea’s win over Newcastle.
Issues with public transport times are expected to cause major problems for Northern-based fans attending the match in Wembley due to train times. The last train from London to Manchester leaves at 9:00pm, and with the match expected to finish at 7:15pm, fans will be left with a short amount of time to vacate the stadium and get to the station to catch the last train home (especially if there’s extra time and penalties.) This means many Northern-based fans could be left stranded in London if they do not manage to get to the station in time.
