This year it's the 143rd time that the oldest cup competition in the world is taking place. Manchester City were the champions last season, having won the tournament for the seventh time. This was a great achievement, as they also won two other major competitions in the same season.

This season's top contenders are expected to be the usual teams like Man United, Liverpool, and Arsenal. However, there are some teams who haven't won any big titles lately, but they're still hoping to make it far in the competition. These teams include Newcastle, Tottenham, and Chelsea, who haven't won any major domestic trophies in the past five years, even though they've had success in Europe.

The FA Cup welcomes all teams, ranging from non-league to EFL sides in the lower leagues. Even though the Premier League clubs join in from the third round, the cup is not just for them. This cup provides every team with an opportunity to shine and potentially face the finest teams in the country.
