The FA have defended the decision to push back the start time of the final.
"We stated on record at the end of last season's final that we were looking at a later kick-off time after an FA review of the competition with fans and broadcasters," said a spokesman.
"Research showed that 5.15pm was more appealing than 3pm. 5.15pm obviously gives people a chance to attend or a play in a game earlier that day before watching the final on TV.
The later time also maximises a bigger domestic and global TV audience for broadcasters."
