FA president Prince William said of the naming: "We’re going to really use the Final as a moment to promote good, positive mental health for everyone.
"It's quite timely bearing in mind what we’ve all been through with this pandemic. I think there’s going to be, sadly, a lot of repercussions from this in society, not just in football, in terms of people’s mental health. Hopefully the FA Cup can be a bit of a pivot that people can rally around.”
