This year in the final the numbers on the players kit were their squad number, not the usual 1 to 11. The replay only attracted 62,267. the smallest attendance for a FA Cup final at Wembley.

In the final itself Arsenal opened up the scoring with just 20 minutes on the clock the ball was crossed into the area where Ian Wright headed in the ball, the score remained the same until the 61st minutes when Sheffield Wednesday David Hirst fired in a low shot which went past David Seaman to equalise for Wednesday, with no further goals during normal time or the 30 minute extra time the Cup Final had to go to a replay.
