FA Cup semi finals: 9 places in Manchester to watch Man Utd and Man City in action at Wembley

It’s a huge weekend for Manchester football fans with both the blue and red halves of the city in action at Wembley - here are some suggestions for where to watch the FA Cup semi finals.

With both Manchester United and Manchester City just 90 minutes away from the FA Cup final, all eyes will be on Wembley this weekend as the city’s two biggest clubs play in the semi-finals.

First up will be Manchester City on Saturday (22 April) as Pep Guardiola’s side meets the lowest ranked team left in the competition, Sheffield United, who will be looking to continue their giant-killing exploits in this year’s cup. The match kicks off at 4.45pm.

Then on Sunday (23 April) it will be the turn of Manchester United as Erik ten Hag’s men clash with Brighton and Hove Albion for the second place in the final, with that match kicking off at 4.30pm.

United are looking for a 13th FA Cup triumph, while City are still in the running for a treble also including the Premier League and Champions League.

While the best place to enjoy the action is undoubtedly Wembley Stadium itself, if you’ve not managed to get a ticket for the journey down to London then watching in Manchester surrounded by fellow football fans might well be the next best thing. Here we’ve rounded up nine great sports pubs and bars in Manchester if you’re looking for somewhere to watch the drama unfold.
