The FA Cup

The FA Cup is the highest knock out cup competition in England. It open to all Premier League, Football League and non-league teams higher than step 7.

It was first played in the 1871/72 season.

The only Leicestershire based team to reach the final has been Leicester City, who reached the final five times, the first four of which they were runners up before finally winning the cup in the 2020/21 season.

In the season pages I’ll only be showing the results of Leicestershire based teams.
