It will be Anthony Taylor the referee of the Fa Cup final between Chelsea and Arsenal.
Taylor had been fourth official for the 2013 final but on May 27 at Wembley he will be the man in charge.
“The first feeling when I got was the call…I was delighted, excited and very, very honoured and humbled to be appointed to the game,” – Taylor said. – It’s been a long-standing dream of mine in the 20-odd years that I’ve been a referee to one day officiate The FA Cup Final, it’s the pinnacle of your domestic career. Most people who love football dream somehow of being involved in an FA Cup Final, usually as a player, but every single referee has dreamed of playing in an FA Cup Final so to referee the game is the next best thing.”
