Gail Davis details the FA Cup’s plans to scrap replays from the first round proper, with fixtures now set to be played exclusively on weekends.

The FA and the Premier League revealed they have reached a new agreement starting from next season for a minimum of six years to “strengthen” the competition with “new and exclusive calendar windows”.

    Anyone in favour of this isn't a football fan.

    Life line is a bit of a stretch. If anyone really thinks clubs are gambling on replays to stay afloat… 😂

    He greatest cup competition in the world. Has had its day. They have slowly destroyed its sole. To many changes. Over the years all to appease the big clubs. For greed.

    The response to this by clubs and fans is hot air. Non EPL clubs should refuse to participate, but they won’t. Fans of non EPL clubs should stop subsidising the EPL and cancel their Sky and BT subscriptions, but they won’t. So cowardly clubs and spineless fans should stop bleating, and start to use the power they have.

    Such a shame to see replays go. Was nice to see close ties get to played again and small clubs drawing at home to bigger clubs and getting and away fixture.

    Wow the magic of the FA Cup is coming to the end next season. I love seeing lower clubs winning match's guess that not happening anymore

  10. @Tony_1992

    April 19, 2024 at 1:26 pm

    this is good. Funding gets increased and no more shitty replays, get it over and done in pens. Who wants to watch a replay in a cup knockout competition ?????? There is no real downside to this

    Diminishing the best Domestic Cup Competition in the World for the sake of the PL, so Clubs can stand a better chance to get into the Champions League and a Competition that is full of anything but Champions.
    They should be ashamed of themselves.

    And just like that, The FA Cup is made worse. FA Cup replays can sustain a club for years. I have never been happy for Arsenal to concede a goal until Jonathan Tehoue scored for Leyton Orient to make it 1-1 in what I think was the 5th round, maybe it was the 4th. Orient celebrated like it was the cup final itself. As my second team I was happy for them as it meant a trip to the Emirates. It was a huge pay day and earned them I think well over 500k and a trip to Vegas I believe courtesy of the owner Hearn.

    I like that all FA Cup games will be played at the weekend and Prem league matches should never happen on FA Cup Final weekend. That should be after the season finishes.

    The FA Cup is being made worse. Bring replays back, they can be midweek. Save the Replay.

    Now a day's
    The D.F.B Pokal
    Is much better to whach
    The D.F.B. has gotten right what The F.A. can't.

    Lowe league club always gets a home, draw the extra time & pens on the night if need no need for
    any replays & it still has its magic.

    explanation 4 or 5 teams in the premiership want more money because they are greedy bastards- the end.

    So, to save you watching the video, those 2024/25 FA Cup changes in brief:

    1. No replays.

    2. The competition will start with the quarter finals, with just the top 8 clubs at the end of this seasons' Premier League. So, no need for rounds 1 to 5 and all those fixture- clogging one sided matches. This will save a lot of travelling for fans of clubs who have no chance of winning the FA Cup and it saves the players from the top 8 teams having to play too many matches.

    3. The 8 clubs involved will all use their reserve teams. (No real change there then).

    4. Proposal for the 2025/26 competition is scrap all the early rounds and just have the final, contested between the two clubs with the biggest bank balance (which is what usually happens anyway).
    Alternatively, don't even bother with the final. Just award the trophy to the richest club at the start of the 2025/26 season.

    Hope that is clear enough.

    They should make it seeded instead, give the lower clubs a chance to play the giants at home

    The FA Cup, no more replays. The greedy Premier League. Let's just ban the Premier from entering it & the rest of us can enjoy the Cup with it's replays. That's the magic that a small club like Wimbledon & other non League clubs can draw at Old Trafford Anfield & take them back to their place. No wonder that more people don't watch today's football.

  28. @nhd6128

    April 19, 2024 at 1:26 pm

    Nobody outside of England cares about the domestic cups (at the same level as the league or Europe) and 65% of the money coming into the PL is NOT from the UK.. the creation & explosion of the Premier League was always going to lessen the domestic cups. Oh well.

    April 19, 2024 at 1:26 pm

    Why have round 1 and round 2 replays been scrapped, richer clubs get richer poorer clubs gets poorer, the FA and Ptemier League were so gutless not to let the Football League have a say

  33. @savilleian

    April 19, 2024 at 1:26 pm

    Good old sky make it all about the premier league and forget about the rest

  34. @sleep99PS3

    700+ clubs in the country suffering for the benefit of the Top 20. Despicable. Tory-esque.

  35. @danglesrk79

    April 19, 2024 at 1:26 pm

    Disgraceful there better be more games on tv for smaller clubs need to make up that money somehow

  36. @mattquinn9975

    April 19, 2024 at 1:26 pm

    If 'fourth, fifth and quarter final weekends will not clash with Premier League games' surely this means they're making more space in the calendar for the FA cup, yet there's no time to have replays? If clubs in European competition can't find time in their schedules to keep having replays that's their problem, but it's the EFL clubs who will suffer instead!

  37. @mattquinn9975

    April 19, 2024 at 1:26 pm

    With no more replays you have to say some of the magic of the cup dies. How many smaller clubs will miss out on trips to big grounds and the revenue that brings them, and how many fans will miss out on potential games?

    this is the end for the FA cup as we know it , no replays means more boring matches

    hell naw

  43. @cameronransome

    April 19, 2024 at 1:26 pm

    It’s clear to see that the premier league has placed pressure on the FA, as they believe match replays could affect the quality of their product (The Premier League), which means potentially less revenue in the long term. They’ve also promised £33M to trickle down to Grassroots Football; There are 18,000 grassroots teams in England, meaning that each team (Hypothetically) gets a cut of £1,833 over a period of time… This is nothing in the grand scheme of things!! This is just another reason why I’m boycotting watching the Premier League; And we need to start calling it what it is… The English Super League!!

  44. @Syanarah

    April 19, 2024 at 1:26 pm

    The Premier League are trying to say that they are overworked? EFL teams in League One and Two have to play in the EFL Trophy, FA Cup and League cup as well as 46 games in the league per season. All this deal does is make sure the money distributed in the pyramid stays towards the top. If this is more about the workload than money, maybe the Premier League teams will have no problem donating all TV and prize money to EFL and non-league teams, especially since they are dragging their feet over the new EFL deal.

  45. @Bricks_Tricks_Mix

    April 19, 2024 at 1:26 pm

    who else agrees that this is just making a bigger gap between lower clubs and European powerhouses? next seasons gonna have so much ucl uel and uecl matches nobody gonna care about fa cup and efl cup anymore 🙁
