We are now able to put the 2017 Emirates FA Cup programmes up for pre-order, to allow fans who wish to own a piece of footballing memorabilia to receive a pristine copy. If you are an Arsenal or Chelsea fan who cannot make the game, we are one of the only official sources of the footy programme outside of the stadium on the day. We also do NOT charge postage, and the price is exactly the same as you’d pay on the day (£10), not inflated Ebay prices!
Get your FA Cup programme here, and if you missed them, we also have the official Tottenham Hotspur vs Chelsea, and the Arsenal vs Manchester City semi-final programmes for sale at just £5. Check out our sports programmes section where we also have the 2016 cup final programme!
2017 Emirates FA Cup Final Info
Fans’ ticketing allocations for the Emirates FA Cup Final will remain consistent with 2016. Last season The FA took the step of increasing the allocation of the two clubs competing in the Emirates FA Cup Final to approximately 28,000 fans each, equivalent to 80 per cent of the available seating.
Tickets are priced at £45, £65, £85 and £115 for adults. A concessions policy in conjunction with the competing clubs will apply for the match.
The stadium ends have also been allocated for both fixtures. Following the agreement of both clubs, Arsenal fans will occupy the east end of Wembley Stadium whilst Chelsea will be in the west end.
Despite Chelsea qualifying for the final first, Arsenal are designated as the “home” team as they come first alphabetically in The FA’s register. Arsenal will be appearing a record 20th FA Cup Final and would be looking to regain the record for most FA Cup wins by winning their thirteenth in this match. Manager Arsène Wenger also jointly holds the record as the most successful manager in the FA Cup having won it six times previously. Chelsea had won the FA Cup four times since 2003. The match is a repeat of the 2002 FA Cup Final, where Arsenal won 2–0 due to goals from Ray Parlour and Freddie Ljungberg.

Crafts such as home sewing, quilting, cross stitching, knitting and papercrafts are as popular as ever, and we know that quality crafting titles are in big demand.

Are you ready for the most exciting tournament since 1958? We certainly are.
With the premier league won in a historical “never to be repeated” win by 5000-1 outsiders Leicester, British footy fans are starting to think about the upcoming Euro 2016 finals.
The British Isles will be represented by not one, not two, not three but four nations at Euro 2016 – the first time that has happened at a major tournament for fully 58 years. We’re determined to celebrate that fact, and in this month’s 442 magazine they have exclusive interviews with key men from each of those four countries.
In fact this month you’ll get two magazines in one bag. Not only will you be able to read England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland previews as part of your normal monthly fix of features in the main magazine, but you’ll also get an additional 68-page Euro 2016 guide – including interviews with stars from all 24 nations at the tournament.
England go into the tournament full of optimism and we speak to Wayne Rooney, Harry Kane, Ross Barkley and Raheem Sterling to find out why it’s time for fans of the Three Lions to start dreaming big.
To celebrate the four nations qualifying, FourFourTwo magazine has commissioned four different covers for the Euro 2016 special preview issue, featuring a 68-page preview guide. We have all four in stock, you pick which one(s) you want and we’ll post them to you same day for free!
One of the ultimate challenges in sport, the US Masters, has started, and several UK golfers have put themselves in a good position after day 1. In the UK, the whole tournament is be shown live on Sky Sports 1HD, from April 7th-10th.
1. Jordan Spieth (-6): With his bogey-free 66, Speith became the first player in Masters history to the hold the outright lead in five consecutive rounds (including his 2015 wire-to-wire win) and became the first defending champion since Jack Nicklaus (1966) to hold the first-round lead. What we’re witnessing is remarkable. It’s Jordan’s course and Jordan’s tournament until proven otherwise.
T2. Danny Lee (-4): After a bogey on No. 7, Lee locked in and recorded four birdies on the next nine holes to finish just two strokes off the lead. Lee is in a good spot, teeing off at 9:26 a.m. ET on Friday.
T2: Shane Lowry (-4): Lowry was near the top of the leaderboard all afternoon after a hot start, so there’s as much focus on the opportunities missed (no birdies and one bogey on the final 10 holes) as the fact he’s done well enough to be two shots off the lead at the Masters.
T4. Paul Casey, Justin Rose, Ian Poulter, Soren Kjeldsen, Sergio Garcia (-3): Casey will be back with Spieth on Friday for what should be the most-watched group of the day. The rest of the group will be interesting to track as conditions continue and just a few good or bad holes will slide them quickly into or out of contention. Rose, the runner-up a year ago, had the ball rolling well and carded six birdies, so I’d make him the most likely threat to Spieth out of this crowded crew.
For those waiting with baited breath for the new BBC Top Gear TV series, we have good news!

You can get the Top Gear Awards issue now, and also if you want to know more about the new presenters, you’ll want this copy with interviews with them all.

The latest issue of world renown music magazine MOJO is flying out, probably due to its coverage of the Rolling Stones, who have just played a historic gig in Cuba, made possible after the thawing of relationships between the USA and its old enemy.
Cuba had a ban on foreign music for many years, so the Rolling Stones made a perfect pick to break the ice. The Stones actually played the gig for free – and I’m sure made many new fans in the process.
The Mojo issue is zeroing in on The Rolling Stones stellar 1966 before zooming forward for an exclusive glimpse of their career-spanning Exhibitionism show (your guide: Mick Jagger!).
The FREE covermount CD, entitled “Paint It Black” features 15 tracks that illustrate mid-’60s rock’s turn to the weird, from The Yardbirds, The Seeds, 13th Floor Elevators, The Rationals and more.
Also in this issue: Miles Davis’s ’70s freak out (and new movie); Graham Nash opens up; Bob Mould on Hüsker Dü and after. Plus: PJ Harvey, Black Sabbath, The Last Shadow Puppets, Lovin’ Spoonful, Thomas Cohen, Adam & The Ants, White Denim, how to buy Earth, Wind And Fire, and XTC’s Andy Partridge on his idea of ‘heaven’: “Imagine your ex-missus bollocking you, for ever…”
Order your copy from us now, and remember, with Mags Direct ‘your online newsagent’, postage is FREE in the UK. We also post magazines across the globe.
Anyone who is interested in golf knows it’s not long until one of the worlds most renown golf tournaments, The Masters. The 2016 Masters Tournament will be the 80th edition of the Masters Tournament and the first of golf’s four major championships to be held in 2016. It will be held from April 7–10 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, and we will be watching every minute we can (might be a few tired heads those few days!).
The whole tournament will be shown live on Sky Sports 1HD, from April 7th-10th.
Jordan Spieth has to be the favourite to come back and repeat his win, but othered fancied players are Adam Scott and Rickie Fowler. Tiger Woods you ask? We doubt he’ll even start the game, as we’re not really sure he’s ready. BUT he COULD still play, and he has been spotted recently at Augusta, so who knows, he can decide very late if he’s going to play.
Only a couple of weeks after Mags Direct went live, we already have 82 different magazine issues available to buy and pre-order. We have back issues, current issues, and the next issue for many magazines ready to purchase and have delivered to you the following day, via 1st class royal mail.
We aren’t going to stop there though, and are already in discussions with our publisher partners to bring even more magazines to our range. We will get more special one-off issues, and collectable bookazines such as the 90 year celebration of the Queen’s life, “90 Glorious Years“.
We already have great feedback from our customers – and it seems our unique service of offering single copies of magazines delivered next day was something missing in the market.
