Wembley Stadium lights up for City

The colours of Bristol City are to be displayed at Wembley Stadium ahead of the Emirates FA Cup final this Saturday (May 19th).

Wembley Stadium will light up its iconic arch in the colours of all 737 teams who featured in the competition over the season.

Those teams vary from Step 6 of the National League system through to the Premier League. The 2017/18 campaign marked the 137th edition of the world’s oldest domestic cup competition, which involved more than 11,000 players and over 3,000 goals.

This season’s Emirates FA Cup final kicks off at 5.15pm on Saturday and will see Antonio Conte’s Chelsea and Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United go head to head for the coveted end-of-season silverware.
