FA Cup Semi Finals 2012/13
The semi-finals are the penultimate round of the FA Cup and they will decide which teams will be present for the FA Cup Final at Wembley stadium. The venue for this fixture was traditionally at a neutral venue, normally at the stadium of a team no longer involved in the competition, who had the capacity to cope with the extreme interest this match attracts. However, Wembley Stadium is now used to help facilitate the large crowds that these fixtures attract.
