2023 Carabao Cup Final to permit standing

The Carabao Cup Final between Manchester United and Newcastle United on Sunday 26th  February (kick off 4:30pm) will be the first major domestic English men’s final in almost 35 years at which some supporters will be permitted to stand.

Both Clubs will receive an allocation of 867 seats which will be available within new standing areas at Wembley Stadium, located behind each goal, in both the East and West Stands, to accommodate both sets of supporters on the day.

EFL and Premier League Clubs have been permitted to introduce licensed standing in seated areas since the start of the 2022/23 season, with the likes of Cardiff City, Queens Park Rangers, Chelsea and Manchester City offering standing for home and away fans.

In these areas, fans are allowed to stand for matches in allocated spaces behind a barrier or a rail which prevents them from falling forward. In all other areas of the stadium supporters must remain seated.
