The FA Cup, which is 141th in its history since its inception in 1871, is one of the biggest competitions on the English football calendar and the oldest competition in the world.
The tournament is open to all clubs in the top 10 sports leagues in England, with 124 teams participating in the first round, including 92 all from the top four leagues. We are now in the third round of the 2021-22 FA Cup which kicks off on Friday, Jan. 7 and Premier League and Championship teams are entering the competition.
In view of the long history of competition, simply lifting the FA Cup trophy represents the victory of many players. Just before joining the Europa League next season is an added bonus.
But there is also a lot of money given to the winner of the competition. Here is a breakdown of the risk money of competing teams.
FA Cup win in 2022
The Premier League team that enters the third round and wins the FA Cup will receive $ 4,625,000. Very good.
Big money comes from just making the final, while teams pay first to win their semifinals and then win or lose the final. Hence the semifinal win guarantees double pay regardless of the outcome of the game.
Below is a full description of the financial rewards for men’s groups, according to FA-approved release .
This payoff is similar to last season’s increase, as well as a decrease from the 2019-2020 competition in which the finalists earned $ 4,800,000 just to win at Wembley. The FA announced in 2020 that the price of wages would decrease due to the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 epidemic.

Receipts for the FA Cup gates and the distribution of ticket money
The the official rules of the FA Cup 2021-22 tournament explain how ticket money is distributed between clubs. The big day of paying for tickets to matches is not just enjoyed by the house team that is drawn to act as the recipient.
The Football Association wants all clubs participating in the game to share the total ticket money up to the quarterfinals. The only time 50-50 divisions change is when a club outside the Premier League or Football League (Championship, League One, League Two) plays with a club from the top four teams. In that case the split is 55-45 in favor of the team that is out of the top four.
When it comes to the final and final games, which are usually held at Wembley Stadium in London, these events are run differently.
Participating clubs do not receive a share of the final FA Cup home receipts, but earn a share of the final ticket sales:
- 5.5% of the first receipts from semis are specified by the FA for distribution to affiliated organizations;
- then the last four semifinalist clubs shared 58.5% of the remaining.
