The FA Cup is the biggest cup competition in English football and also the oldest in the history of the game. An amazing 736 across 10 levels of the English football league system competed in the 2015/16 season through twelve random knockout rounds, the semi-finals and the final.

Manchester United and Crystal Palace will contest the 135th FA Cup final on May 21st, with many fans sure to use FA Cup live streaming as their way to watch the match, having followed their respective teams using this method as well as other interesting games as neutrals.

There will be many fans unfamiliar with the concept of using FA Cup live streaming options, but with a little help, it can become the most trusted method for those without the right TV subscriptions.

While many TV stations provide official streams on their respective websites for subscribers, there are many other sites that collect all freely available streams together in one place for non-subscribers. While the sites themselves are sometimes susceptible to legal action due to TV rights, viewers can freely access FA Cup live streams without fear of repercussion. A stream is created and us fans can drink from the stream, if you will. Sometimes the streams will shut off at which point a simple transition to another of the hundreds of live streams around is all that’s needed.

Streams can be of any footballing TV channel, from SkySports to BT Sports. They can be in multiple languages from many different countries. The streams can be good quality, HD quality, and sometimes bad quality, and it’s up to you to search for your perfect one on matchday. They can also be accessed anywhere in the world with an internet connection.

How it works:

Not every site is the same, and some can be complicated to negotiate. A rule of thumb is to look elsewhere if the site you’re on requires you to subscribe. There are plenty of other non-subscription options on the web.

Links should appear close to kickoff, with many updated as they are either shut down or a better live stream becomes available. Adblock apps can sometimes restrict access, with may sites relying heavily on advertisements for revenue. If the problems persists then temporarily disable your adblock software and refresh the page. A number of ads will appear but once removed you should have a clear path to your chosen stream.
