The Football Association (FA) has confirmed the new £800m Wembley Stadium will host this year's FA Cup final on 19 May.

The news follows the successful completion of two test events at the stadium which lead to Brent Council to award the stadium its General Safety Certificate.

The certificate means that from today Wembley can host events with up to 90,000 spectators.

FA chief executive Brian Barwick said: "I'm happy to confirm that the 2007 FA Cup Final will be played at Wembley Stadium.

"It's the announcement that a lot of people have been waiting for and is great news for football fans in this country and indeed the world over.

Wembley Stadium managing director Alex Horne said: “We received the keys to the stadium just over a fortnight ago. Since then Wembley and The FA’s staff have worked incredibly hard to put on two great test events in a very short period of time.

"We realise that there is still some way to go yet and are digesting the feedback we have received in order to ensure that coming to Wembley Stadium is a fantastic experience for fans.”

The FA also announced today that The FA Carlsberg Trophy and The FA Carlsberg Vase Finals will be held at Wembley Stadium on 12 and 13 May at a capped capacity as part of the build up to the official opening on 19 May.
