This season I'm aiming to watch as many rounds of the FA Cup as possible and maybe even complete the 'Road to Wembley'. There are 14 rounds in total. From the Extra-Preliminary Round in August to the Final on 18 May.
The financial rewards for non-league clubs in the FA Cup are pretty sizable, so it gives fans like me the chance to watch some high-stakes knockout football. Here are some Road to Wembley money facts:
- prize money for the winners in the Extra-Preliminary Round is £2,250
- by the First Qualifying Round winners receive £6,000
- any non-league club that makes the First Round proper will pocket a huge £25,000
Next round: Second Round
Sadly, Haringey Borough's historic FA Cup came to end in the First Round against AFC Wimbledon. I'm awaiting the draw before deciding on which game to go to next, but hopefully I'll stick to one of the remaining non-league clubs that are left, or maybe Wimbledon. We'll see.
Progress so far:
