The Manchester derby heads to London this weekend for a special edition at Wembley Stadium.

On Saturday, Manchester United and Manchester City will meet in the FA Cup final for the first time.

City has a chance to make history as just the second English club to win a treble — three trophies in one season. The Premier League champions need to defeat United, the only other treble-winning EPL team (1999), on Saturday, then secure victory in the UEFA Champions League final against Inter Milan on June 10.

The game could be the Glazer family’s last as owners of Man United, with a sale of the club potentially coming this summer.

There is a monetary incentive for both clubs, too. The FA Cup winners will be awarded an additional $2.5 million on top of the $2.38 million each team has already earned throughout the tournament. The runners-up will receive an extra $1.25 million.

The FA Cup final regularly brings in 80,000-plus fans to Wembley Stadium, and Saturday’s match will no doubt be filled with supporters from both clubs. Each team was allotted 30,500 tickets that are now selling for much more than face value, which started as low as $52.

Secondary ticket websites have get-in prices as well above $500, with some tickets as high as $5,000.
