FA Cup

A piece of aged silverware represents the game at its simplest and, dare we say it, most romantic. Our collection brings you giants and giantkillers, long-forgotten clubs and euphoric crowds.

All the passion, glory and despair of decades of cup drama comes through in these newsreels, amateur films and local TV reports. Like the cup itself, it's a collection that embraces the unpredictable, the unlikely and the unforgettable.
