Football Association to speak with supporters about FA Cup final ticket prices

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has said that his team won't be the favourites when they face Manchester United in the FA Cup final.

The Football Association has agreed to talk to supporters about ticket pricing after criticism about the cost of attending this season's FA Cup final.

Supporters will have to pay £145 for a category A ticket after paying £80 for the same seat at the semifinal.
