Birmingham FA Senior Cup

Birmingham County FA Senior Challenge Cup

The Senior Challenge Cup is the most prestigious competition hosted and administered by Birmingham County Football Association.

The competition itself along with the wonderful trophy is nearly 150 years old (1876-77) and, as such, is one of the oldest football competitions in the world.

This eagerly contested competition is for all clubs that are at or above Step 5 in the National League System which proudly includes all our Professional Clubs – Aston Villa (20), Birmingham City (13), Burton Albion (4), Coventry City (3), Walsall (4), West Bromwich Albion (7) and Wolverhampton Wanderers (7) (titles in brackets)

The Final is almost always played at one of our Senior Club grounds which offers the players, coaches, spectators and club volunteers some wonderful and lasting football memories with many famous players and Managers having competed for the cup over the years.

Our senior match officials also vie to be appointed to the Final with most of our FIFA, Premier League and EFL officials having either Refereed or Assisted in the Final and/or appointed to various rounds.
