How to watch Man City vs Man United FA Cup final live stream

A week after winning their fourth consecutive Premier League title, Manchester City take aim at another trophy in the FA Cup final against rivals Manchester United today. It’s the second straight year that the FA Cup will be decided with a Manchester Derby, and it truly doesn’t get much bigger than this.

The match is starting soon, at 10:00 a.m. ET, and will be broadcast exclusively on ESPN+ in the United States. Here’s everything you need to know about the streaming service, and how exactly to watch Man City vs Man United.

Watch Man City vs Man United on ESPN+

If you live in the United States, there’s only one way to watch City vs United: ESPN+. There’s no free trial, and it costs either $11 per month by itself or $15 per month for a special bundle of ESPN+, Hulu and Disney+.

As such, there’s no way to watch the match for free in the US, which is unfortunate. But on the plus side, ESPN+ is well worth it at the price-point. Beyond City vs United (which is a match so big it’s probably worth $11 by itself), you’ll also be able to watch FCK vs Bayer Leverkusen in the DFB-Pokal (German Cup) final today, as well as boxing (Taylor vs Catterall 2 is today), PGA Tour, college sports (including the ongoing softball super regionals and baseball conference tournaments), cricket (the West Indies vs South Africa 2nd T20 is today), UFL football, the 2024 Crossfit Games and other live sports.

And if you ever get bored with the live stuff, there’s also hundreds of hours of on-demand content to watch, including the always-popular 30-for-30 documentaries, original shows and more.
