FA Cup

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.
