About the FA Cup Final
The FA Cup, which is also referred to as the Football Association Challenge Cup, is the most prestigious and oldest soccer (football) competitive tournament worldwide, having first occurred in 1871 with participants from 15 different clubs. Since that time the tournament has experienced significant growth, with hundreds of teams competing today from dozens of different UK regions. It is considered a yearly knockout soccer competition for male participants throughout the UK. The event is organized through the Football Association and also features a women’s edition, referred to as the FA Women’s Cup.
Traditionally, the FA Cup Final will be held in London at the Wembley Stadium, but due to past renovations on the complex it has also been held at Cardiff Millennium Stadium in Wales. What makes this event so highly anticipated, aside from its heritage, is the exceptionally high level competition which will be present. While entry is made available to professional English teams of the Football and Premier League, eligibility is also made available to other clubs.
Between 2011 and 2012 a record number of teams competed, more than 750 clubs. Each tournament is comprised of 12 rounds which are drawn randomly, after which the semi-finals and finals will be held. Entrants will not be seeded, though a byes system is utilized which encourages higher ranked teams to appear in the later rounds.
What this means is that as the soccer season commences smaller teams which are relatively unknown may be given an opportunity to compete with famous and well established groups, and will sometimes win. For anyone who is a fan of soccer, this is simply an event that you won’t want to miss. During 2017 the London club known as Arsenal captured the trophy and today holds 13 FA Cup victories, which is a record and the culmination of their win over Chelsea with two goals for one. Wembley Park itself is situated near the Metropolitan and Jubilee Lines, just twelve minutes away from Baker Street. The venue is thus easily accessible by private transport.
