The 2010 Football League Trophy Final was the 27th final of the domestic football cup competition for teams from Football Leagues One and Two, the Football League Trophy. The final was played at Wembley Stadium in London on 28 March 2010. The match was contested between Carlisle United and Southampton. Southampton won the match 4–1 to give them their first silverware since winning the 1976 FA Cup. The attendance may not be as high as it could have been because Carlisle did not require the maximum amount of seats, whereas Southampton F.C would have been able to sell more than their amount given, and this had angered the fans as Wembley Stadium would have some parts empty, and they could have been used by Southampton fans.
