The most socially-engaged League Cup Final ever!

A range of activity has been taking place around the event that will help to make it the most socially-engaged League Cup Final ever.

This includes the innovative social media vote for supporters to #OwnTheArch, which will see Wembley's famous arch lit up in the colours of either Chelsea or Tottenham ahead of the Final.

The League has been tracking the use of two designated hashtags on Twitter throughout this week - #ChelseaAtWembley and #SpursAtWembley. The hashtag that receives most use on the social network before 6pm on Saturday will be declared the winner and the arch will be lit up in that club’s colours the night before the Capital One Cup Final.

On the day

Before all the match action gets under way, the London Youth Choir will be performing the national anthem, after being signed up to perform at Wembley by sponsors Capital One as part of the Little Legends campaign.

In addition, Capital One’s Little Legends campaign will also see 15 lucky children occupy other money-can’t-buy roles at the Final.

Capital One has selected the 15 children for the ‘starring roles’ including hanging up Chelsea’s and Tottenham’s kit in their Wembley dressing rooms, carrying the teams’ flags out onto the pitch, handing over the matchball to referee Anthony Taylor and taking part in a half-time penalty shoot-out.
