About England - FA Cup
The FA Cup, is the world's oldest association football competition. For several decades, it's been a platform for fairy tales and upsets with "minnows" like Portsmouth (2008) and Wigan Athletic (2013) conquering England to lift the trophy.
The first ever FA Cup final, in the 1871-72 campaign, was attended by 2,000 spectators. In the 21st century, the number has increased from over 71,000 to almost 90,000 spectators. An interesting fact about FA Cup finals is that none has rivaled the 1922-23 one which is believed to have gathered between 150,000 and 300,000 fans although the official record attendance reads 126,047.
On 30 May 2015, after trouncing Aston Villa 4-0 at Wembley, Arsenal became the most successful club in the FA Cup with 12 title wining it back to back, surpassing Manchester United (11). A total of £15,132,000 (prize fund) is to be cashed out between the participants of the 135th English FA Cup edition, with the winning team grabbing £1,800,000.
