In order to fully understand the FA cup, one needs to consider its rich history, heritage and historic importance to English and European football. If you ask football fans in England what is the most important tournament of the year, there is a very good chance that most of them will tell you that it is the FA Cup. The FA cup stands for the Football Association Cup. Historically speaking, it is the oldest football competition in the world and one of the world's oldest sports competitions.
FA tickets for some of the games are virtually impossible to find a few days before the matches and media attention, both local and international is sky high. The FA Cup 2012 is promising to be one of the most exciting of the season, with teams such as Manchester City and Manchester United tying to win the trophy side by side with teams from each and every UK football league. Sensational surprises in the past, with teams from lower leagues eliminating some of the best know teams, have served to increase the FA Cup popularity even further and to push FA tickets sales levels to new heights. The FA cup is considered a source of pride for UK football and FA tickets sales do much to assist teams from lower leagues to maintain their budgets.
The FA Cup is also considered one of the most prestigious and sought after awards in European Football. The finals game is one of the most anticipated televised events of the season and is being watched by viewers from all over the world. If we continue to examine the history and tradition of the FA cup leading all the way to the FA Cup 2012, the tournament began as early as 1871. What makes the FA Cup tournament so unique is the fact that it is open not only to Premier League teams, but also to teams from all other UK lower leagues, including the National league and the Football league. This means that teams from lower leagues have a chance to shine once a year and compete with the higher level teams. Players are highly motivated as scouts are known to watch the early games and try to locate promising talents from the lower leagues.
The popularity of women football brought with it a high level of interest in the FA Cup women's tournament. FA ticket sales for the annual FA Cup women's tournament have been steadily increasing each and every season. Both the FA Cup 2012 men's tournament and the FA Cup 2012 women's tournament promise to be as popular and as exciting as ever.
