The English FA Cup, also known as Football Association Challenge Cup, is the premier English annual knockout football competition in England. In relation to the major football/futbol leagues, the FA Cup is the oldest. Above that, it is one of the oldest and most prestigious domestic cup competitions in the world. The tournament is organized by the Football Association (FA), which is the governing body of football in England. The FA Cup was first held in the 1871-1872 season. It involves teams from various levels of English football, from the top-tier Premier League to non-league teams. Over 700 clubs enter the competition each year.
The tournament follows a knockout format, where teams are paired in a series of single-elimination rounds. Matches are typically played on the home grounds of the participating teams, except for the semi-finals and the final, which are held at neutral venues (Wembley).
The winner of the FA Cup earns the trophy and the title of FA Cup champions. Additionally, the champion qualifies for the following season's UEFA Europa League, unless they have already secured a place in the UEFA Champions League through their league position. The FA Cup is known for its rich history, memorable moments, and giant-killing upsets, where lower-ranked teams defeat higher-ranked opponents. It is often regarded as a showcase of the diversity and competitiveness of English football. To read more about the competition and statistics of champions, please do so.

The EFL Cup (referred to as the League Cup), currently known as the Carabao Cup for sponsoring rights. The tournament is played over seven rounds, with single-leg ties except for the semi-finals. The final is held at Wembley, which is the only tie in the competition played at a neutral venue and on a weekend (Sunday). An implication often overlooked is that the winners get a place in the UEFA Europa Conference League.
Should the winner also qualify for Europe through other means at the end of the season, the highest-placed Premier League team not already qualified for European competition gets the spot. Now in relation to the status of what this means, it is the lowest prestige between the Premier League and FA Cup. This competition is closed for only league tier'd sides of the English Football System. Although the pot to other tournaments is not as significant from the other competitions, it is a measure of prestige. And in recent years the trophy has been dominated by Manchester City, with a Liverpool, Manchester United, and Chelsea sprinkle.
