The FA cup dates back to well over a century ago and is the most prestigious cup competition in English football. Last year over 700 teams competed for this distinguished trophy with clubs from grass roots level right through to teams from the Premier League taking part. Last year the winners were Arsenal, who beat Aston Villa 4-0 to retain their title, meaning they have won the FA Cup for two years running. Ticket Pad will have a great selection of Arsenal tickets for their FA Cup games if you want to see if they can clinck the FA Cup title for a third successive season. The FA Cup holds the title of being the oldest association football competition in the world and is probably the most followed domestic cup competition worldwide. You can get your FA Cup tickets for all the biggest games of the tournament right here at Ticket Pad.
There are a total of 14 rounds in the competition with the early stages open for non-league sides to pit themselves against each other. Every season, without fail, a team that are relatively unheard of will make a name for themselves by progressing to the latter stages of the competition or will shock the country by beating a league club. Over the years the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool have slipped up against lower division sides and the FA Cup is always packed with thrills. The phrase synonymous with the FA Cup competition is ‘the magic of the FA Cup’ and this continues to live on even now as we enjoy the 2015/2016 FA Cup.
If you look through the history books FA Cup magic is clearly there for all to see. Even as recently as 2015 it was in full force as a miserable January weekend ended in crushing defeats for Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham, with smaller lower league teams spoiling the party for all three. With the drama of a knockout cup format the FA Cup is great for entertaining football.
