With its rich history, The FA Cup remains one of football’s most iconic competitions and one that players dream of winning.

First held in 1871, it’s the oldest, longest-running tournament in the world, and countless iconic players and teams have lifted the trophy.

When they do so though, they get more than just their names in the record books, with a financial reward being provided for the winners and every other club that takes part for that matter.

For the biggest clubs in the country, the money up for grabs in the FA Cup isn’t a huge amount, but it can have an enormous impact on those outside of the Premier League.

Sides that made it through qualifying to the first round proper and then won in that round were given £41,000, while a further £67,000 was given to those that tasted victory in the second round as well.

The prize money then rises considerably for the third round, the stage at which Premier League and Championship enter the fray, with teams getting £105,000 if they win in it.

After that, the money on offer continues to rise at a rapid rate, with the reward being particularly lucrative for those that make the last four, as those teams are given large sums of money even for a loss.

The team that wins this year’s FA Cup will be given £2m for winning the final alone, up £200,000 on what Liverpool were awarded for doing so last year.

In total, adding up the prize money they’ll receive at each stage, the victors will pocket around £3.9m assuming they entered in the third round.

That sum would be slightly higher if the winner plays outside the top two divisions and thus competed in the first two rounds as well.
