Saturday's FA Cup final between Arsenal and Chelsea was the most watched match of the 2019-20 season, television viewing figures have revealed.

The Wembley final, which Arsenal won 2-1, was watched by 8.2million people at its peak on BBC One and had an audience share of 46.1 per cent.



The viewing numbers for the final topped the audience figures for the FA Cup semi-final between Manchester United and Chelsea on July 19, which attracted 7.3million people at its peak.



Saturday's final at Wembley was played behind closed doors, with only a set number of people, consisting of the players, coaching staff, club officials and media personnel, allowed into the ground.

In Saturday's final, Chelsea took an early lead through American winger Christian Pulisic's clever finish after good work from former Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud.

The viewing figures for Saturday's FA Cup final is small in comparison to the most-watched football match of all time - the 1966 World Cup final between England and West Germany.

England's successful World Cup final, which attracted 32.3 million people, is the most-watched British TV event of all-time.
