FA Cup 1872-73


FA Cup 1872-73

The Football Association Challenge Cup 1872-73 was the second staging of the FA Cup, England's oldest football tournament. Sixteen teams entered, one more than the previous season, although two of the sixteen never actually played a match.

In keeping with the original concept of it being a "challenge" cup, the holders, Wanderers, were given a bye all the way to the final, for which they were also allowed to select the venue. This was the only season in which the holders were granted these privileges.

Queen's Park were given byes until the semi-finals in order to reduce the amount of travelling necessary, but then withdrew anyway when scheduled to play Oxford University, who therefore received a walk-over to the final.

First Round

Third Round

Final

Wanderers were exempt until the final as the 1871-72 Cup winners.

The final was played at Lillie Bridge. The attendance of 3,000 was considered low and attributed to the Boat Race occurring later in the same day, so few turned up or in fact stayed for the whole duration of the game.
