2018/19 FA Cup round dates – from Extra Preliminary Round to the Final




The 2018/19 Emirates FA Cup kicks off on Saturday 11th August with the Extra Preliminary Round with the full draw due in July.

The competition starts with clubs from step 5 and 6 of the English Football Pyramid and ends at the famous Wembley Stadium in May and is now in it’s 148th year.

Last seasons 737 sides entered the 2017/18 competition with the eventual winners Chelsea beating Manchester United 1-0 thanks to an Eden Hazard penalty.

There were – as is expected – some great stories along the way with Slough Town reaching the Second Round Proper while both Boreham Wood and Woking amongst others did their bit to fly the non league flag.

Looking for the full draws for each round, they along with the FA Trophy and FA Vase are here.
