FA Cup

  The FA Cup was first held in 1871–72. Entry is open to all teams who compete in the Premier League, the Football League and in Steps 1 to 5 of the FA National League System, as well as selected teams in Step 6. This means that clubs of all standards compete, from the largest clubs in England and Wales down to amateur village teams. The tournament has become known for the possibility for “minnows” from the lower divisions to become “giant-killers” by eliminating top clubs from the tournament and even theoretically winning the Cup, although lower division teams rarely progress beyond the early stages. The qualification rounds and a system of byes mean that the very smallest and very biggest teams almost never meet.

 

  英格兰足协杯是世界上历史最悠久的足球比赛,英格兰各级足球球会进行一对一的淘汰赛,在足协杯的比赛中经常有低级别球会淘汰高级别球会的冷门出现(同样情况亦有于英格兰联赛杯出现,但是基于部份英超豪门派出副选甚至青年军去参加比赛而起,而足协杯是以强阵出击但仍出局的情况不时发生)。

 

  Arsenal are the current holders, having beaten Hull City 3–2 after extra time in the 2014 final. Their 11th FA Cup title, this brought Arsenal level with Manchester United for the greatest number of title victories in the history of the competition.
