The dates and times for both last-four clashes at Wembley Stadium were confirmed by the Football Association on Friday, with the capital rivals set to kick-off at 4:30pm BST on April 17.
In the UK, the fixture will be broadcast live on ITV.
Chelsea fans are set to be able to buy tickets for their second trip to Wembley in the space of two months after the Government amended the special license under which they have been operating since the sanctions placed on owner Roman Abramovich that sparked a fire sale of the club.
Meanwhile, the heavyweight showdown between Premier League title rivals Manchester City and Liverpool will kick off at 3:30pm on Saturday April 16, live on BBC One.
There had been strong calls – including from respective mayors Andy Burnham and Steve Rotheram – for that first semi-final to be moved away from Wembley, with no direct trains to or from London from either city across the Easter weekend due to engineering works.
However, the FA had no plans to move the fixture and have been liaising with Network Rail and National Express in a bid to find a solution with minimal disruption.
The FA have now announced they will charter 100 buses from Anfield and the Etihad Stadium to Wembley and back, ensuring up to 5,000 fans can make the journey free of charge. Hundreds of miles of unessential roadworks are also set to be put on hold.
City had also announced plans to provide subsidised coach travel to fans set to make the trip to north London next month.
The club announced yesterday that they had secured an initial 50 coaches to operate a day trip travel package, with tickets priced at £40 per person.
