An exciting final that could be classed as the Giantkillers final, as all of the big teams were knocked out along the way. Who would have thought that these two teams would make it all the way to Wembley?
Premier League Portsmouth play up against Championship side Cardiff City. Kick off is a 3PM British Summer Time, which is +1 of GMT.
Both teams have won the FA CUP once before.
Pompey's victory was in 1939, Cardiff were the only non-English side ever to lift the trophy in 1927.
(For readers who are not familiar with this country: Cardiff is in Wales, (the capital) which is part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland - but they play in the English league and competitions)
It is also the Scottish Women's FA CUP today.
THE National Day for Girls' and Women's Football takes place at St Johnstone's McDiarmid Park.
The day kicks off with the under-15 Scotland v Netherlands International Challenge Match at 11.00am, and that is followed by the RAF Scottish Schools' FA Under-15 Scottish Shield between Calderglen High School and Selkirk High School at 1.00pm.
The day ends with the SWF Unite Scottish Cup Final between Hibernian LFC and Celtic LFC at 3.15pm.
