1973 FA Cup Final


The 1973 FA Cup Final took place on 5 May 1973 at Wembley Stadium. It was the 92nd final and the 45th to be played at Wembley, which was celebrating its 50th anniversary year. The final was contested between the previous season’s winners Leeds United, who were one of the dominant teams at the time, and Sunderland, a second division side. The result was one of the biggest shocks in the history of the competition, with Sunderland winning 1–0, becoming the first Second Division side to lift the Cup since West Brom in 1931.
