About the event

In celebration of the History of the FA Cup some of the world’s oldest clubs have 

got together to play in a new brand of football competition, The Generation Cup!

There are three qualifying events at Old Carthusians and Civil Service grounds in 

the south and at Darwen FC in the north The finals day is at St George’s Park care 

of the FA.

Last year was the FACUP150 and the inaugural teams entered teams and Crystal 

Palace of the premier league lifted the cup defeating The Civil Service and Upton 

Park at St George’s Park on finals day.

Netflix subscribers might have seen “The English Game” and be reminded it was 

the clubs and people from the Northwest of England that took on the Amateur 

Clubs and Public schools of the South. We revisit these rivalries today and in this 

year’s Generation Cup between these teams, we have 14 FA Cup wins and some 

great FA Cup finals to be remembered!

This new competition is “father and son” football where club legends of 

yesterday share the same pitch with present day players, the ultimate dream
