The FACTAs are presented by @FACupFactfile recognising the achievements of Non-League Clubs whose journeys in the FA Cup begin in the Extra Preliminary, Preliminary or Qualifying Rounds of the competition. The awards are not just about recognising which clubs went the furthest in the competition, but are also about recognising those clubs who had a great one-off performance, or those clubs who showed an excellent spirit in the competition.
Nominations are sought for each of the four main awards. Nominations can be submitted in the comments section of this blog or via Twitter by tweeting them to @FACupFactfile.
When nominating please state club name, FACTA award name and reason for nomination.
The four FACTA categories are:
‘Team of the FA Cup’ – The club that epitomises the spirit and approach of non-league clubs in the FA Cup
(Past winners: Didcot Town and Stourbridge)
‘Performance of the FA Cup’ – The club that produced the best one-off performance of the competition, an act of giant-killing, a massive margin of victory, or a stunning comeback
(Past winners: Chesham United and Barrow)
‘Surprise of the FA Cup’ – The club that produced the biggest unexpected result or achieved an unexpected FA Cup feat
(Past winners: Hoddesdon Town and Westfields)
‘Special Team Award’ – Presented to the club that produced something unique or special in the competition
(Past winners: Hartley Wintney and Lincoln City)
Nominations close on Christmas Eve.
