The 1978 FA Cup Final took place on 6 May 1978 at Wembley Stadiummarker. It was contested between Arsenal and Ipswich Town. While Ipswich were considered underdogs, with Arsenal fielding a number of well-known players, including England striker Malcolm Macdonald, Ipswich won the match 1–0.

Ipswich dominated the game, hitting the woodwork three times (including twice from John Wark) before Clive Woods and David Geddis combined to produce a chance for Roger Osborne, who scored with a left-foot shot. Osborne promptly fainted at the emotion of the moment and was brought round by smelling salts prior to being substituted.

It remains Ipswich Town's only FA Cup triumph to date and they have not appeared in the final since, although they did appear in the semi-final three years later.
