And it will be Newcastle taking on Manchester United in the mouth-watering showpiece at Wembley.
The Magpies stormed their way into the final after beating Southampton 3-1 on aggregate.
Eddie Howe’s side have not won a major trophy in 68 years as he looks to make history.
While United cruised into the final after beating Nottingham Forest 5-0 on aggregate.
Both clubs have announced ticket details already for the final – however this one will have a huge change following successful standing trials in both the Premier League and EFL.
A statement from the EFL read: “The Carabao Cup Final between Manchester United and Newcastle United on Sunday 26 February (kick off 4:30pm) will be the first major domestic English men’s final in almost 35 years at which some supporters will be permitted to stand.
“Both Clubs will receive an allocation of 867 seats which will be available within new standing areas at Wembley Stadium, located behind each goal, in both the East and West Stands, to accommodate both sets of supporters on the day.
“EFL and Premier League Clubs have been permitted to introduce licensed standing in seated areas since the start of the 2022/23 season, with the likes of Cardiff City, Queens Park Rangers, Chelsea and Manchester City offering standing for home and away fans.
“In these areas, fans are allowed to stand for matches in allocated spaces behind a barrier or a rail which prevents them from falling forward.
“In all other areas of the stadium supporters must remain seated.
“Tickets for this area will be sold by the Clubs in accordance with the Wembley Stadium Ticket Policy.”
