Banks's Stadium to host cup final between Man City and Arsenal U15s

9 May 2017

Manchester City and Arsenal youth sides will contest the Premier League’s U15 Super Floodlit Cup Final at Walsall FC’s Banks’s Stadium on Friday evening (7.45pm kick-off).

Entry is free to spectators with all seating situated in the Homeserve Stand, with Gate 3 the open entrance on the evening.

The Citizens are looking to win the Super Floodlit Cup for the second year running, with last season’s U15s beating West Bromwich Albion 2-1.

City beat local rivals Manchester United 9-0 on their way to the Northern Final of the competition, in which they beat Derby County 3-1 at Pride Park Stadium.

Arsenal beat Fulham to make the final at the Banks’s on Friday, May 12.


James King will officiate the 80-minute game, assisted by Jake Allsopp and Dominic Chambers with Liam Corbett the fourth official.

“We are delighted to be hosting the Super Floodlit Cup Final at the Banks’s on Friday, May 12,” said Walsall FC’s Commercial Manager Wayne Thomas.

“We hope it will be a great game and a great experience for the young players in front of a good crowd at the home of Walsall Football Club.

“We thank the Premier League for selecting our stadium to host the final.”
