The 2017/18 FA Cup begins in August 2017 for teams at step 5 and 6 of the English Football Pyramid with the Extra Preliminary Round.
736 teams competed in the 2016/17 run of the 146 year old competition with three teams from East Berkshire starting in the very first round.
The FA Trophy (teams at step 1 to 4) and FA Vase (teams at step 5 and 6) both begin in September.
