The FA People’s Cup is a small-sided competition. It is completely free to enter and welcomes male, female and disability players across 18 categories – ranging from U14s through to veterans (over-35s).
In partnership with BBC Get Inspired, the Football Association and the country's leading small-pitch football providers have joined forces to make it happen over the past few years as grows from strength-to-strength.
From Sunday league regulars to folk who have only kicked a ball in their back-yard, the tournament offers everyone the opportunity to follow in the path of legends on the road to glory.
The opening rounds are localised, with Greater Manchester having a number of venues for the different categories on offer. The Semi-Finals still remain in Manchester, with the Finals being more national based. Previous places to hold these are Sheffield, Birmingham and St. George's Park.
