FA plan to avoid clash between Premier League and Cup final

General secretary of the FA, Alex Horne, says negotiations are underway to avoid a repeat of last season where the FA Cup final was played on the same day that Manchester United sealed the league title.

Horne says he is in talks with the Premier League to ensure the final has its own Saturday, and is also considering moving it to an early evening slot, to avoid clashing with local afternoon fixtures.
