FIFA Region


The 2021-2022 English FA Cup (ENGCUP1) is the most prestigious football club tournament in England. The 2021-2022 ENGCUP1 is a "Knockout" tournament. The Final will be held on 14 May 2022 at Wembley Stadium. The winner of the 2021-2022 ENGCUP1 receives a berth in the Group Stage of the 2022-2023 UEFA Europa League. Leicester City (ENG1) is the defending ENGCUP1 champion.

In each of the first 5 rounds, if a match ends in a tie, the two teams have a replay at the home field of the first match's away team. If the match is still tied after regulation time, two 15-minute extra time periods are played. If still tied after extra time, a penalty shoot-out is held.
