The actual original match ticket from the 1998 FA Cup Final match from the original Wembley Stadium, London.  Arsenal beat Newcastle United 2-0 in front of a full house, 79,183 spectators.  This ticket is a beautiful piece of English Football history.

The match was on 16th May 1998 and was a repeat line up of the 1932 and 1952 Fa Cup Finals which were both won by Newcastle United.

Six-time winners Arsenal were appearing in their thirteenth final, whereas Newcastle United, having also won the competition six times, appeared in their eleventh final.

Each team had progressed through five rounds to reach the final. Arsenal's victories were close affairs and the team required three replays, two of which ending in penalty shootouts. Newcastle's progress was more comfortable by comparison and needed only one replay in the fourth round, against Stevenage Borough,  Arsenal entered the match as favourites; a fortnight prior the club won the Premier League and aimed to complete the club's second league and cup double.

Watched by a television audience of more than seven million, Arsenal took a first half lead through Marc Overmars. A goal after the interval, scored by striker Nicolas Anelka gave Arsenal a 2–0 victory.
