What is the format of the FA Cup?

The FA Cup follows a traditional knockout format, making it one of the most thrilling tournaments in English football. The competition begins with multiple qualifying rounds involving amateur and semi-professional teams from across the country. These rounds serve as a pathway for smaller clubs to progress and potentially face professional teams in the later stages.

Once the preliminary rounds are completed, the competition enters the main draw, where Premier League and Championship teams enter the fray. This is when the tournament truly intensifies as top-tier clubs clash with lower-league and non-league teams, creating the potential for upsets and memorable underdog stories.

The FA Cup progresses through several rounds, with each round consisting of a single fixture. In the event of a draw in a particular round, a replay match is scheduled at the opposing team's stadium, providing another chance for teams to advance.

The tournament culminates in the final match, where the two remaining teams battle it out for the prestigious trophy. The winner of the FA Cup not only earns the title but also secures a spot in the next season's UEFA Europa League.
