How to stream the 2018 FA Cup Final live
The FA Cup is one of the few competitions in professional sports where lower-division local teams get the chance to knock out their big-name rivals. The 137th edition of the world’s oldest football tournament will culminate in a final match on Saturday, May 19, at Wembley Stadium in London.
Here’s how to watch:
- Sign up for ExpressVPN
- Install ExpressVPN on any device you want to watch the FA Cup on.
- Connect to a VPN server location in the United Kingdom.
- Head to the BBC iPlayer website or download the BBC iPlayer desktop app, iOS app, or Android app.
- Navigate to the FA Cup final live stream and watch the championship as it happens!
Note that in some cases, BBC’s iPlayer will alert you that the content is not available in your location even if the VPN is set to a UK server. If that happens, you need to clear your cookies. Do so either in your browser settings or by using a browser plug-in/extension like EditThisCookie.
Watch the FA Cup from the U.S.
If you have a U.S. cable subscription that includes ESPN Deportes, you can also stream the FA Cup final live on FOX Sports Go, though the commentary will be in Spanish.
If you don’t have a cable subscription, you can buy a paid subscription to FOX Soccer 2Go and stream the game there. Be sure to switch ExpressVPN to a server located in the U.S. if you’re not in the country.
Stream the FA Cup from Canada
Canadian cable TV subscribers can also watch the game on Sportsnet World Now. Again, set ExpressVPN to a city in Canada if you’re out of the country, then log in using your cable TV account details. You can also pay for a separate digital-only subscription if you don’t have cable.
Watch FA Cup games anywhere!
If none of those options work for you, check for more official live listings on Live Soccer TV, a website that aggregates streams from around the world. The site will notify you if geo-restrictions apply, in which case just set ExpressVPN to the appropriate country and clear cookies to watch.
