The FA Cup - Extra Preliminary - Final
« on: July 07, 2012, 15:51:23 PM »
I"m thinking about doing the FA Cup - From start to Finish.

Extra Preliminary Draw has been made to be played on the 11th August.  Containing 200 Ties. Randomly choose a team, tie, or select my nearest team, then follow the winner from there onwards.

Preliminary Round Saturday 25 August 2012
First Round Qualifying Saturday 8 September 2012
Second Round Qualifying Saturday 22 September 2012
Third Round Qualifying Saturday 6 October 2012
Fourth Round Qualifying Saturday 20 October 2012
First Round Proper Saturday 3 November 2012
Second Round Proper Saturday 1 December 2012
Third Round Proper Saturday 5 January 2013
Fourth Round Proper Saturday 26 January 2013
Fifth Round Proper Saturday 16 February 2013
Sixth Round Proper Saturday 9 March 2013
Semi Final Saturday 13 & Sunday 14 April 2013
Final Saturday 11 May 2013

Challenge will be Tickets obviously in the later rounds, but bit of willpower/luck sure its done done plenty of times before.

Any experience here?.Any pitfalls I"ve not thought about?

Would do a diary type here for those interested

OK but don"t milk it.

I have read a book from the late seventies about Tiverton FC... Very good and I know a few lads who have done the whole trip from Prelim to Final. It"s easy at the start as it only costs a few pounds but when it gets to the "big clubs" they couldn"t give two ****s about what you are trying to do...
I"m going to try again this year with one of these three..... Formby, Bootle or AFC Liverpool........

Good luck with this Waz. APAT member Tony "1leg" Curran did this last year and blogged it

http://1legonthecup.com/

Its worth a read, just for a few tips on getting tickets for the more "in demand" ties.

Please do a diary, it should be a great read!

Good Luck Mate....

i had a brilliant time doing this last year & if you write a blog a lot of the Championship, League 1 & 2 clubs will let you in as press! lol who knew??? the non league sides will as well if you ask but i didn"t mind paying them the money, they need it  ;)

i"m doing all 3 this year, FA Vase, Trophy & Cup - 34 games incl. 3 Wembley finals  ;D starting with the Cup on the 11th. AFC Blacpool v AFC Liverpool & i"m off to Rhyl FC v FC United M/cr this Sat. (14th) for a bit of a warm up  ;D

if you"re not on twitter, GET ON IT lol you will need it come December & follow anyone with #Twitter92 #TwitterFootballFamily #FootballFollowBack or #GroundHopper in their bio ( or follow me @1LegOnTheCup )

post your fixtures somewhere & let me know because we"ll end up at the same game at some point, or keep your eye on my fixtures here - http://bit.ly/N8P9vt  also i ended up pretty well connected last season at the FA, Budweiser & Wembley. can"t promise anything but i"m a lot more confident about tickets this year than i was last!

good job i"m such a brilliant poker player to fund this eh Rob?  ;D

if you get stuck with it gimme a shout, cheers... Tony.  tony1leg@gmail.com

S5 WCOLAP Omaha Bronze
S6 WCOLAP Omaha 2nd, WCOLAP Omaha H/L 3rd
