The FA Cup (also known as the Football Association Challenge Cup) is a knock out competition between English football teams of any league. It has been held since 1872. The current trophy, a silver cup, is the 4th version of the FA Cup. The 1st was stolen in 1895, the 2nd was a copy of the 1st, and was used until 1910. The 3rd FA cup was larger and was used until 1992, but was retired due to its fragility.
The FIFA World Cup is the biggest single sport event in the world, held every four years. The next event will be in South Africa in 2010. More about the FIFA World Cup.
