FA Cup Dreams – Could it be Wigan Athletic again this season?

FA Cup Dreams

FA initiative gives children a chance to make their FA Cup dreams come true

Every fan, manager and player dreams of lifting The FA Cup – and a new initiative from the Football Association this season is providing a glimpse of what it would be like for Wigan to get their hands on the famous trophy again.

In a bid to introduce a new generation of fans to the magic of the world’s oldest domestic football competition ahead of Wigan Athletic’s Fourth Round tie against Crystal Palace at the DW Stadium, The FA has released a short film showing a young Latics fan dreaming of winning The FA Cup at Wembley.

Watch the video here: 

The FA is also giving under 12s the opportunity to have their own FA Cup Dreams come true, with prizes offered throughout the season including the chance to win The FA Cup in your home overnight, lift the trophy in front of your own club’s fans, walk out with the players at The FA Cup Final and even win a sleepover at Wembley the night before it.

The initiative is being backed by FA Cup winner and England legend Michael Owen, and families are encouraged to enter at www.facebook.com/TheFACup
