Want to play in the FA Cup? Course you do...

Everybody talks about the magic of the FA Cup but what if amateur footballers could taste that magic as well as their professional counterparts? Well, now you can…

About to enter its second year, the FA People’s Cup is a five-a-side competition run in partnership with BBC Get inspired, encouraging amateurs of all ages and abilities from U14s upwards to take part in the national game.

Footballers can register whether they are already part of a team or an individual looking to join a ‘wild card’ team. Indeed, 2015’s competition resulted in over 1,000 new teams being formed, with 30,000 players taking part across ten categories, from girls to veterans, walking footballers to those with disabilities.
