The FA Cup is the biggest cup competition in English football and also the oldest in the history of the game.

The competition dates back to 19th century, and besides its suspension during the First and Second World Wars, the competition has been played every year since.

The first FA Cup winner of the 20th century was Tottenham Hotspur. They became the only non-league club to have ever won the FA Cup final after the formation of the Football League in 1888 as they were playing in the Southern League back then.

The 1923 FA Cup Final saw the competition played out for the first time in the iconic Wembley stadium. The record says over 2,00,000 people watched the game meant for 127,000 and many spilt out onto the pitch.

Chelsea won the 2017-18 FA Cup after beating Manchester United 1-0 at Wembley in May.

FA Cup Live Online Streaming 

The 1927 FA Cup final was the first ever Cup Final to be broadcast by the BBC, and till date they are one of the major broadcasters of this competition. They share the FA Cup Live broadcasting rights with BT Sports.

Online Live Streaming is probably the future of watching sports, and many fans use FA Cup live streaming as their way to watch the games.

The 2018-19 FA Cup can be followed on BBC iPlayer app or online with the iPlayer live stream. However, you’ll be required to pay for a TV license if you want to watch this in the UK.

The best option is to watch the game on, which requires no logins. It is a paid account, but it also offers a 14-day free trial.

The BBC will broadcast one game from every round of 2018-19 FA Cup qualifying, starting with Haverhill Rovers against Haverhill Borough.

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. Some of the prominent UK bookies including new betting sites offer live streams too. 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.

Check out our guide to FA Cup live streaming below.

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.
