FA Cup Winners: Complete Results From 1872 To Present Day

There have been 142 FA Cup winners of the Football Association Challenge Cup, as it was commonly known in the early years. A knockout competition in English football, the FA Cup is organized by and named after the Football Association (FA).

The competition has existed from 1871–72, making it the oldest existing football competition in the world. Every year, two billion viewers will watch the soccer match worldwide.

To qualify for the tournament, clubs must meet specific stadium requirements at their home stadiums in the top 10 divisions of the English football league system. As the showpiece finale of the English football season, the FA Cup Final is held at the end of the league season (on June 3rd, 2023).

How Old Is The FA Cup

The FA Cup is the oldest football competition in the world. It was first held in 1871-1872.

Who Won The First FA Cup

The first FA Cup final was held in 1872, and the competition was won by Wanderers FC, a team composed mainly of former public school students. The Wanderers beat the Royal Engineers 1-0 in the final, which was held at the Kennington Oval in London.

Where Is The FA Cup Final Played

In most cases, FA Cup Finals have been played in London: most of these have been played at the original Wembley Stadium, which closed in 2000. Kennington Oval, Crystal Palace, Stamford Bridge, and Lillie Bridge were used in London before 1923, as were Goodison Park in Liverpool, Fallowfield Stadium, and Old Trafford in Manchester.

While the new Wembley Stadium was under construction, the final was held at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium for six years (2001-2006). When the final ends in a draw, replays have been played on other grounds to determine the FA Cup winners over the years. Since 2007, the final has been held on the hallowed turf of the new Wembley Stadium.

How Many Teams Have Won The FA Cup

As of 2022, 43 teams have won the FA Cup. They are Wanderers, Oxford University, Royal Engineers, Old Etonians, Clapham Rovers, Old Carthusians, Blackburn Olympic, Blackburn Rovers, Aston Villa, West Bromwich Albion, Preston North End, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Notts County, The Wednesday (Now knowns as Sheffield Wednesday since 1929), Nottingham Forest, Sheffield United, Bury, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Everton, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Bradford City, Barnsley, Burnley, Huddersfield Town, Bolton Wanderers, Cardiff City, Arsenal, Sunderland, Portsmouth, Derby County, Charlton Athletic, Blackpool, West Ham United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Leeds United, Southampton, Ipswich Town, Coventry City, Wimbledon and Wigan Athletic.

Early History Of The FA Cup Winners

Former London public schoolboys, the Wanderers, were the first FA Cup winners. In its first seven seasons, the Wanderers won the competition five times. Early FA Cup past winners were all wealthy amateur teams from the south of England. However, after defeating Old Etonians in 1883, Blackburn Olympic became the first team from the north to win the cup.

At the same time, professional teams began to dominate the competition, quickly eroding the prominence of amateur teams. The Football League was formed in 1888 by the leading professional clubs. There has been one FA Cup winner among non-league teams since then.

Tottenham Hotspur won the 1901 final, then of the Southern League, over Sheffield United, then of the Football League. Following Sheffield United’s success in the final a year later, the cup remained in the hands of Northern and Midland clubs until Tottenham won it again in 1921.

Non-English Winners

The only non-English club to win the Football Association Challenge Cup was Cardiff City in 1927, despite playing in the English football league system. In the early years of the competition, Queens Park of Glasgow reached the final twice.

Aside from the 1914–15 season, when it was completed, and the 1939–40 season, abandoned during qualifying rounds, the competition did not occur during the First and Second World Wars.

During 1973-1980, English second-tier teams won unprecedented cups. The most recent cup victory by a team outside the top division was West Ham United’s in 1980, following Sunderland’s 1973 triumph.

The match would be replayed if there was a draw in the final until 1999. There has always been a penalty shootout in the final since then. In the FA Cup finals of 2005, 2006, and 2022, penalty shootouts were only required three times.

Clubs From Outside The Top Division To Win

Outside the top division winners:

Notts County – 1894 – Taking the trophy away from first division opposition, The Magpies became the first winners of the FA Cup outside the top flight to do so. When the semi-final draw was made, Notts were outsiders, but they surprised the odds by beating Blackburn in the last four and Bolton in the final.

Tottenham Hotspur – 1901 – The Southern League champions thrashed West Bromwich Albion 4-0 in the semi-final, with Sandy Brown scoring all the goals. After a replay with Sheffield United in the final, Tottenham became the first and only non-league side to win the FA Cup.

Wolverhampton Wanderers – 1908 – After finishing ninth in the second division of the Football League, they became the lowest-ranked club in the Football League to win the FA Cup trophy in the final.

Barnsley – 1912 – Despite playing 12 fixtures and three extra-time matches to win the FA Cup trophy, Barnsley conceded just three goals. Barnsley Football Club was in the second division when they won the FA Cup and added their name to the FA Cup finals list.

West Bromwich Albion – 1931 – In the FA Cup final, West Bromwich Albion of the Football League Second Division beat local rivals Birmingham 2–1. As a result, the Baggies became the first and only club to win the cup and gain promotion simultaneously.

Sunderland – 1973 – Since West Bromwich Albion lifted the cup in 1931, they became the first Division Two team to become FA Cup champions. One of the biggest sporting shocks in English history is that Sunderland was the FA Cup winners, defeating the famous Leeds United team.

Southampton – 1976 – After being relegated the season before, Southampton won 1–0 thanks to Bobby Stokes’ 83rd-minute goal. It was Southampton’s first major trophy victory and the Queen’s last visit to a FA Cup final trophy presentation.

West Ham United – 1980 – The last team from outside the top flight to win the FA Cup is West Ham United. After finishing fourth in the First Division and having been in the previous two finals, Arsenal were overwhelming favorites before Trevor Brooking headed the ball home for a famous 1-0 victory..

What Do FA Cup Winners Qualify For?

This seems to change each year. In 2022, The rules were:

  • Champions League group stages are reserved for the top four teams in the Premier League.
  • The fifth-place finisher and the FA Cup winner qualify for the Europa League group stage.
  • Winners of the Carabao Cup qualify for the Europa Conference League playoffs.

In light of Liverpool’s FA Cup victory (but they finished second, so they qualified for the Champions League before the FA Cup final), their Europa League qualifying spot will be handed over to the Premier League team who comes in second without qualifying.

In this case, it was the other FA Cup finalist Chelsea. However, they had also pre-qualified for next season’s Champions League finishing third in the Premier League. The Europa League group stage spot ends up going to Manchester United, who finished 6th in the league at the end of the season.

Who Receives A FA Cup Winners Medal?

Back in the day, only the players starting the match and on the bench would receive a FA Cup winners medal. The manager would also receive a medal. In 2022, the FA provided 40 medals to the winning team to distribute between the players used throughout the tournament and the coaching staff.

Ashley Cole (7 times) holds the record for winning the FA Cup most often, with Arsenal in 2002, 2003, and 2005, and Chelsea in 2007, 2009, 2010, and 2012. Charles Wollaston (Wanderers), Arthur Kinnaird (Wanderers & Old Etonians), and Jimmy Forrest (Blackburn Rovers) all won 5 FA Cup winners medals

As a manager, Arsène Wenger (7 times) holds the record for most FA Cup wins with Arsenal (in 1998, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2014, 2015, and 2017).


How Much Money Do FA Cup Winners Get?

In 2022, the winner, Liverpool Football Club, received £3,412,000.

The breakdown is as follows:

  • Third Round Victory: £82,000
  • Fourth Round Victory: £90,000
  • Fifth Round Victory: £180,000
  • Quarter Final Victory: £360,000
  • Semi-Final Victory: £900,000
  • FA Cup Final winners: £1,800,000

As runners-up, Chelsea would receive £2,512,000 as they only receive £900,000 for long the final. This does not include the gate receipts and tv revenue the clubs would have received in the third, fourth, and fifth rounds and quarter-finals.

FA Youth Cup Winners

Under-18 English football teams compete in The Football Association Youth Challenge Cup. To qualify, a player must be 15 to 18 years old on 31 August of the current season. Following the success of The FA County Youth Cup developed seven years earlier, The FA Youth Cup was established in 1952.

An idea for a youth cup was conceived by Sir Joe Richards, the late Football League President. When he first presented the idea to the league clubs, they weren’t enthusiastic; Richards took his vision to the Football Association, which liked it, and the competition was created.

2022/23 FA Cup Schedule

Now that the FA Cup has officially kicked off for the 2022/23 season, hundreds of football clubs throughout the UK will dream of money-spinner ties against Premier League giants. Liverpool Football Club is the current FA Cup holders.

In the earliest preliminary round at the start of August, the FA Cup officially began on the same weekend as the Premier League pitting non-league teams against each other.

In the first round proper at the start of November, teams from the bottom two league divisions in England – League One and League Two – compete against non-league minnows after playing six qualifying rounds.

Although the greatest giant killings occur at the start of January, there are always memorable upsets at that stage. Twenty Premier League teams and 24 Championship clubs begin their FA Cup campaigns in January 2023.

The final day of the English domestic season, June 3, is traditionally considered a showpiece. To find the best betting offers to claim during this season’s FA Cup competition, visit bettingbonus.com/uk.
