an English football competition that takes place every year. Teams from the Premier League and the Football League take part, as well as teams which are not professional and not part of the league. The winner of each match goes into the next round and the team that loses no longer takes part. It is England's oldest football competition, and still one of the most important. It is often very exciting when teams from small towns play against famous teams from the Premiership. The winner of the FA Cup each year enters one of the major European competitions in the following season. see also cup final
