The Football League Paper
WHO HAS BEEN YOUR TRUE FA CUP HERO?
THE FA are celebrating football’s heroes who have gone above and beyond for the FA Cup this season – and they want to hear from you!
From the extra preliminary rounds kicking off in August with social distancing to NonLeague Marine taking on Premier League giants Tottenham in the third round, it has been a season like no other in the world’s most famous competition.
In the build-up to this season’s Emirates FA Cup Final, The FA are looking to celebrate some of the inspirational stories of people who have gone the extra mile for the competition in a challenging 12 months.
The FA are welcoming nominations for anyone from, or associated with, a club who you feel deserves to be recognised. For example, it could be: ● Someone who has used the competition as a force for good in their club or community
● Fans who’ve found creative ways to support their club in the Emirates FA Cup from afar
Players who’ve had an unexpected call up to a match squad or overcome adversity to participate in the competition
If you’d like to nominate your Cup hero, email email@example.com with the person you’d like to nominate and reason for the nomination.
