See Arsenal v Hull City in the FA Cup final

As the oldest cup competition in world football, the FA Cup is engrained into British sporting culture, having provided some iconic matches during its long and distinguished history.

The final is always a major event in the sporting calendar, and the experience of attending the match at Wembley is something that no football fan will forget in a hurry.

The 2014 FA Cup will reach its conclusion on May 17th at the famous stadium in North London, with local side Arsenal set to take on Hull City in what is sure to be another dramatic final.

The Gunners will be under pressure to win the match and lift their first trophy in almost a decade, heading into the game as heavy favourites.

However, after needing a penalty shoot-out to overcome Championship side Wigan Athletic in the semi-final, Arsenal are fully aware of just how powerful the cup is when it comes to inspiring underdogs, and will need to be at their best if they are to avoid an upset.

Hull City, meanwhile, survived a scare against League One outfit Sheffield United, twice having to come from behind in their semi-final before eventually powering to a 5-2 victory and booking their place in the showpiece event.

Interestingly, the two finalists are set to meet in the Premier League this Saturday (April 19th) is what many people are describing as a dress rehearsal for the Wembley showdown, with the victory of the upcoming fixture gaining something of a psychological advantage over their FA Cup opponents.

Having been redeveloped in the early years of this century, Wembley Stadium is now one of the finest sporting venues in the world, so regardless of whether or not you actually support one of the teams playing in the final, a day out at the national stadium is always an incredible experience.

Accessible from Wembley Park Tube Station – which is on the Metropolitan Line of the London Underground – the famous stadium is easy to reach from the Montcalm Hotel.
