There isn’t long now until May 18 where we see the final two teams standing from a 736 team competition battle it out. On the 18th, the 138th FA Cup Final will commence with a spot in the group stage of the 2019-20 UEFA Europa League up for grabs for the victor.
Manchester City will be going up against a perhaps somewhat surprising opponent in Watford. Everyone loves a David v Goliath-style battle and here we will show you how to get access to a stream of the game from anywhere in the world.
For Manchester City, this will be their fourth FA Cup Final appearance and have made it all the way there with a pretty comfortable run. As a Premier League team they’re entitled entry into the tournament in the 3rd round, but from there they achieved wins of 7-0, 5-0 and 4-1 over Rotherham United, Burnley and Newport County respectively to advance to the Quarter-finals. From there they achieved a tighter 3-2 win over Swansea thanks to goals from Silva and Aguero as well as an own goal by Swansea’s Nordfeldt. A 1-0 Semi-final win over Brighton & Hove Albion awarded them their place in their fourth FA Cup Final
Watford had a tighter run to the final. Entering in the 3rd round like Manchester City, they never won by more than 2 goals with scores of 2-0, 2-0, 1-0 and 2-1 against Woking, Newcastle United, Queens Park Rangers and Crystal Palace to award them a spot in the semi-finals against Wolverhampton. Here they came away with a tight 3-2 after extra time to grab themselves their second finals berth.
Agencies have Watford at long odds to win this clash, but football is a low-scoring game, so anything can happen. One or two simple mistakes and Manchester City might find themselves playing catch-up. Wembley Stadium will find itself packed for the event, so if you didn’t manage to get tickets and find yourself randomly somewhere abroad, keep on reading.
Live Stream the FA Cup Final from Outside your Country
To watch the FA Cup Final from anywhere is super simple. All you need to do is download a VPN, install it, then watch it from this link here. If you do not yet have an account, you will need to make one.
That link there provides access to the stream from BBC One, England’s FREE broadcaster for the event. BBC One allows free access to anyone within the United Kingdom to watch and enjoy the FA Cup Final.
“But I’m outside the UK. This doesn’t apply to me.” Is what you may be asking. Well, most streaming services or subscriptions require significant monthly payments in order to watch worldwide sporting events. By downloading a VPN you can get access to the UK exclusive stream from anywhere in the world. This is because a VPN can modify your location.
By downloading and installing a VPN, then connecting to a server within the United Kingdom, BBC One will believe you are in the United Kingdom when you connect to the player and you’ll be off watching the FA Cup Final.
Which VPNs to Use?
There is a huge range of options. Below I will provide a list of VPNs I believe are within the top bracket.
I’m not going to stop to review all the VPNs but I don’t think you can go wrong with either of these five. ExpressVPN will provide you the greatest coverage and best response time, particularly if you ever require customer service, but it is more expensive than most.
VPNs do much more than allow you to move location, such as increasing security in a number of ways detailed here. If you are highly invested in researching what VPN suits best go for gold, but otherwise any of the above five should satisfy you regardless.

As for the game itself. Personally, as much as I love an underdog story, I think Manchester City will come through for a comfortable victory if their Premier League form is anything to go by. Crazier things have happened though. Let’s hope for something crazy!
