The 2021 FA Cup Final was an association football match played between Chelsea and Leicester City at Wembley Stadium, London, England on 15 May 2021. It was the 140th final of English football's primary cup competition.

Youri Tielemans scored the game's only goal as four-time runners-up Leicester City won 1–0, claiming their first FA Cup title. As winners, Leicester City would have qualified for the 2021–22 UEFA Europa League group stage; however, they eventually qualified for the Champions League group stage after placing third in the Premier League.[1]
