FA Cup Final 2009 Live on Sony Pix, ITV1 Channels

This is the last match of the 2008-09 season of English football and this is perhaps the second most prestigious trophy in English domestic football after premier league. There is no doubt, both Chelsea and Everton are determined to win the title in what would make their Summer vacation more enjoyable and exciting. Everton has not won any silverware since current manager David Moyes and the last time they won the FA Cup title was way back in 1995. Naturally, Everton players are now dying for silverware and the FA Cup 2009 title would make their otherwise descent season a great one.

Chelsea is also starving for silverware, compared to their record and performance since the turn of the century. The Blues were without any silverware last season and they have not won any trophy this season. They won FA Cup last time in 2007. So, Chelsea would try their best to avoid a second consecutive season without title. Moreover, Chelsea is going to play their last match under their short term coach Guus Hiddink. Naturally, Chelsea players would like to bid farewell to their inspirational manager with silverware. So, you can expect an exciting affair between Chelsea and Everton with both teams ready to show their best in their bid to win the title of FA Cup 2009.

Live on Sony Pix and ITV 1 TV Channels

The seemingly exciting match between Chelsea and Everton will be shown live on Sony Pix and ITV 1 television channels. European football fans would be able to watch the match live on ITV 1 television channel. ITV was fully criticized because of a broadcasting error that happened during Everton vs Liverpool fourth round replay, but still ITV is going to cover the final match of the tournament. This time, they are expected to be much more concerned about the matter. No doubt, the incident cost the TV channel its goodwill and they are now ready to retain their lost reputation by giving quality coverage of the final match between Chelsea and Everton. ITV is the oldest commercially run television channel in UK as the channel has been active since 1990.

In India the match will be shown live on Sony Pix television channel. Sony Pix is not a very popular channel in this region, and no many household has this channel in India and South Asia. Naturally, many football fans in this region are disappointed as they can not enjoy the exciting matches of FA Cup this season. I also got surprised to see that Sony Pix even did not try heart and soul to promote the channel and the competition in India. There are many people who even do not know which channel is showing the FA Cup 2008-09 matches. It is a very new channel which has very little amount of viewers. I think, Sony should have telecast the match live on its other popular channels like Sat Max or Sony TV.

Time and Venue

The match will be held at the Wembley stadium, London, England on 30 May 2009. The match kicks off at 15:00 BST (British Standard Time), 19:30 IST (Indian Standard Time), 20:00 (Bangladesh time). If you are an avid football fan, then I guess you might already know about the Wembley stadium. Still, I am giving some information about Wembley stadium here:

1. Wembley Stadium is the home venue of England national football team.

2. With 90,000 seating capacity, Wembely stadium is the second largest stadium in the world.

3. Each and every seat of the stadium is under cover. There is no bigger stadium than Wembley stadium where every seat is under cover.

4. This is one of the most expensive football stadium in the world.

5. As football is originated in England, the stadium is also termed as “The Home of Football.”
