About the FA Cup final
The Football Association Challenge Cup, or FA Cup for short, is the largest turn-based cup competition in English football. It is organised by the Football Association alongside the Premier League and is also named after it. Since teams from all leagues take part in the competition, there is the possibility that teams from the lower leagues will throw the top teams out of the competition.
The FA Cup was first held in 1871/72 and is thus the oldest football competition in the world. In the FA Cup season 2011/12 the record number of 763 teams played for the title.
The competition is a round competition, the pairings of which are determined randomly by lot. There are no seeded teams. The draw also decides which team has the right to play at home. If the match ends in a draw, a return match is played on the field of the other team. If the return leg also ends in a draw, extra time is played and penalties may be awarded. In the past, there were further repeat matches in such a case, so that occasionally up to five matches were needed to find a winner. The semi-finals take place on a neutral pitch. The final normally takes place at Wembley Stadium in London. During the construction of the new stadium, the final matches took place at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. The 2001 final thus became the first FA Cup final to be played outside England.
The competition begins in August with the extra preparation round for teams not playing in the professional leagues. It is open to any team that is a member of the Football Association, has a certain standard of ability and an appropriate playing field. 763 clubs participated in the 2011/12 season. The extra preparation round is followed by the preparation round, four qualifying rounds, six normal cup rounds, the two semi-finals and finally the final. All Football League teams can participate, as can any team that participated in the FA Vase or FA Trophy in the previous season and is allowed to play in a recognised league for the current season. All participating teams must have a stadium with adequate and safe capacity.
The teams of the highest leagues will be exempted from some of these rounds: Nationwide Conference teams will take part in the competition from the fourth qualifying round onwards, Football League 1 and League 2 teams will meet the winners of the fourth qualifying round in the draw for the first main round in November. Football League Championship and Premier League clubs will participate in the competition from the third main round onwards. This traditionally takes place on the first weekend in January. The final takes place at the end of the season in May. Tottenham Hotspur claimed to be the only team from outside the league to win the FA Cup 1901 (they played in the Southern League at the time and only became members of the Football League in 1908). At that time, however, the football league consisted of only two divisions with 18 teams each. Thus the victory at that time is comparable with the victory of one of the rear teams from the First Division today.
The team that wins the cup qualifies for the group stage in the Europa League. If the cup winner has already qualified for an international competition via the Premier League, the sixth-placed team in the Premier League follows.
Successes of underclass teams
In the FA Cup there were numerous victories of underclass teams against teams from higher leagues. Yeovil Town, then in the Southern League, reached the fifth main round in 1948/49 and later beat several professional teams before advancing to the Football League in 2003. AFC Bournemouth beat Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur in 1956/57. He was defeated by Manchester United in a hard-fought quarter-final. Hereford United beat Newcastle in 1971, and in a game of the fifth round in 1977/78 two such teams met: Third Division AFC Wrexham had defeated Bristol City and Newcastle, Blyth Spartans amateurs had defeated Stoke City. Wrexham won the repeat in front of a large crowd at St James’ Park in Newcastle. In the following round, Wrexham was beaten by Arsenal. A few years later, Wrexham took revenge when it beat Arsenal in 1992 in the repeat in Wales. This is particularly remarkable as Arsenal became English champions in the previous season and Wrexham finished that season at the bottom of the table. In 2008, second-rate FC Barnsley beat Liverpool FC 2-1 in the Anfield Road Round of 16, followed by a quarter-final win at home’s Oakwell Stadium by Nigerian striker Odejayi 1-0 against Chelsea FC in the 66th minute with a goal from Nigerian striker Odejayi.
