The FA Cup is open to any eligible club down to the 10th level of the English footballing pyramid including of course all of the those in the Premier League and Football League (levels 1-4).
Here at SportsStream.co.uk our main focus for the FA Cup is live streaming of matches in what is often called the FA Cup proper- round 1 through to the final although we may feature any big matches from the early qualifying rounds.
In the early round of the competition our focus is on those matches that feature a possible shock result. These results that are often known as ‘Giant Killings’ or ‘Cupsets’ and in our opinion it is these types of matches that really make the FA Cup stand out.
Although knock out competitions between lower league teams and top flight teams happen in the majority of football playing countries around the world nowadays, there is something special about the FA Cup.
In other competitions there maybe 1 or 2 upsets per year but here in England we are lucky to have a competition where there is often numerous shocks per round.

Knockout football always offers up exciting and unpredictable entertaining action simply thanks to the very nature of it. Every team wants to win every match they take place in but non want the burden of extra time and/or the lottery of a penalty shootout. That means that in the majority of matches 1 or both teams have to attack to get the goals needed to send them through.
That can lead to higher ranked teams running away with matches but it can also leave them exposed, giving opportunities to the lower ranked teams and that is why we can often get upsets.
In recent seasons Premier League and ever increasingly Championship teams name ‘weakened’ teams for their early round matches and whilst this often doesn’t go down to well it does give more opportunities for teams coming up against them.
It also allows up and coming youngsters a chance to not only make it to the first team but also to impress in an internationally televised competition.
One of the biggest issues for fans in the FA Cup is that matches can often be arrange and/or re-arrange at short notice due to the nature of the competition but also due to television companies and their schedules. That can make it difficult for supporters to get to matches, especially if there is a long away trip involved.
The good news for fans of all clubs is that many FA Cup matches are shown live on TV, not only in the UK but also around the world and the majority of these matches can be watched 100% legally live online via our partners from right here at SportsStream.co.uk.
