Supporters need to deal directly with their clubs in order to obtain tickets. Each finalist usually receives an allocation of approximately 30,000 tickets to distribute among fans who wish to attend the final.
Ticket prices range from £150 for adults to £20 for under-17s and over-65s.

One set of fans will be situated on the west side of the stadium and the other will be situated on the east side.
Winners of the Carabao Cup are set to receive £100,000 ($130k) in prize money and the runners-up receive £50,000 ($65k). The losing semi-finalists receive a consolation prize of £50,000 each.
Carabao Cup prize money pales in comparison to that awaiting the winner of the Premier League, which distributes hundreds of millions, and the FA Cup, which will see the winning team pocket over £6 million ($8m).
Do Carabao Cup winners qualify for the Europa League?
Winning the Carabao Cup earns qualification to the Europa League second qualifying round.
However, if the winners of the Carabao Cup earn a superior continental qualification, their second qualifying round place goes to the highest placed team that has not already qualified.
In 2018-19, for example, Manchester City won both the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup, meaning the teams finishing in sixth (Manchester United) and seventh (Wolves) benefited as a result.
