The FA Cup (Football Association Challenge Cup), founded during the 1871-1872 season, happens to be the oldest national football competition in the world. Winning the FA Cup is considered a prestigious achievement due to its long history and the open nature of the competition, which allows lower-league and amateur teams the chance to compete against top-flight teams. The tournament is open for participation to all eligible clubs down to Level 10 of the English football league system, which includes teams from the Premier League down to lower-tier amateur teams.

The winner of this knockout tournament directly qualifies for the UEFA Europa League, unless they have already qualified for European competition through their league position. One of the most exciting aspects of the FA Cup is the potential for “giant killings,” where lower-league teams defeat top-tier teams against the odds.

The cup in discussion has been won by a variety of clubs in recent years. Traditional powerhouses like Manchester City, Chelsea, and Arsenal frequently make appearances in the final. As far as the finals are concerned, iconic matches like the “Matthews Final” in 1953, named after Sir Stanley Matthews, and Wimbledon’s shock win over Liverpool in 1988 are etched in football history. If you didn’t know already, it was Wanderers FC, an amateur team, that won the first FA Cup in 1872. But the question remains, who has won the most FA Cup titles in the tournament’s 150-year-long history? Let’s find that out!
