FA Cup prize money

FA Cup prize money: A total of 729 clubs entered the Emirates FA Cup for the 2021-22 season, the 150th campaign of the competition’s history.

That number has now been reduced to just eight, even though there is one more fifth-round clash to be played.

But what will the winners take home?

The total prize fund will remain at circa £16m which is the same level as it was for the 2020-21 competition.

Winners and losers in all rounds of the qualifying legs will receive some payments.
