The 2008 FA Cup Final is a football match scheduled to be held at Wembley Stadium tomorrow on 17 May 2008. The match will be the 127th FA Cup Final, and the second to be held at the new Wembley Stadium since its redevelopment.
The match will be contested by Portsmouth and Cardiff City.
This replica of the cup was on show in Cardiff during our stay there last week. You could be photographed holding the cup with artificial background of Wembley, or what so ever. If not, H&M was ready to offer their usual stuff.
The other cup is placed in Portsmouth.
Although Cardiff City are considered a Welsh club and only hold associate membership with the Football Association, should they win the 2008 FA Cup they will be allowed to compete in the 2008-09 UEFA Cup. However, it was decided that Cardiff would not have been entered for the UEFA Cup as FA Cup runners-up had Portsmouth already qualified for the UEFA Cup by finishing fifth in the Premier League. In such a scenario, the sixth placed Premier League team would have been awarded the UEFA Cup place. However, since Portsmouth finished eighth, this condition is now irrelevant.
The FA announced that, before the game begins, the Welsh national anthem, "Land of My Fathers" (Welsh: "Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau") will also be played along with "God Save the Queen" and "Abide with Me"
