Football - FA Cup

The most historic football competition in the world was born in the middle of the Victorian era - a great period of change across England. And it was the industrial innovation seen throughout the country that was transferred into the sporting context to create a tournament famous around the world.
Clubs from the Premier League down to regional amateur divisions compete to reach the showpiece final at Wembley Stadium in London, a nine-month process from the extra Preliminary round through 12 more stages until the final itself.The present trophy is actually the fourth. The first was stolen from a shoe shop window in Birmingham in 1895 and vanished without trace. The second was given to FA's grandee Lord Kinnaird in 1910.
The longest running trophy was the third, presented to the winners from 1911 until 1991 before being deemed too delicate to be handled in public. A replica has been used since 1992.
The final has been held at the following grounds other than Wembley:The Oval, London in 1872 & 1874-92; Lillie Bridge, London in 1873; Fallowfield, Manchester in 1893; Goodison Park, Liverpool in 1894; Crystal Palace, London 1895-1914, Stamford Bridge, London 1920-22 and the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff 2001-06.
