Next year’s SSE Women’s FA Cup Final will be played at Wembley Stadium for the third consecutive year.
Arsenal Ladies defeated Chelsea Ladies 1-0 in front of almost 33,000 supporters in May, a record attendance for the final.
The total prize money has more than tripled this season, from £70,000 to £240,000, with the winners of the 2017 final on Saturday, May 13 receiving £15,000.
Kelly Simmons, FA director of football participation and development, said: "It was very important to secure Wembley again for the final so that we can continue building the momentum around the growth of the Cup and the women's game in this country.
"Last year's final was another great occasion for the game and with attendances increasing year-on-year, it looks set to be another big moment for women's football.
"It was also the right time to look at prize money and we've worked hard to increase this at every level of the competition which will allow clubs to reinvest back into their sides and make the incentive to progress through even higher."
Tickets to the final are already on sale on the FA's website, with adult tickets priced at £15, while children go free.
