Emirates FA Cup 2019-20 TV Preview 

The Emirates FA Cup is one of the most popular tournaments in the world, with television audiences watching on six continents, and stadiums across England, Wales and Guernsey cheering on their favourite sides. The tournament utilises a knock-out format so there’s always a chance of a huge upset, and the prize money for reaching the Semis is quite lucrative with the winning side claiming $3.3million AUD for an added incentive. The winner of the FA Cup will also automatically qualify for the Europa League group stage. This year’s edition saw a total of 736 teams take part, and some six months later there will be just two clubs remaining to saviour the “Magic of the Cup”. 

The first few rounds of the FA Cup form the Qualifying Competition, which sees a number of a ‘minnow teams’ look to advance through to the Competition Proper. Those who do so are faced with professional teams from Leagues One and Two, while later still in the tournament the Premier League and EFL Championship clubs join the fray during the Third Round, which kicks off on January 4th, 2020. The Draws for each round of the competition will be announced every two weeks starting from the 7th of September until the 19th of October. The Competition Proper, also known as the Main tournament, kicks off with the First Round on November 9th, 2019, and steadily progresses through to the Final on 23 May, 2020.
