THE FA CELEBRATES EMIRATES FA CUP GOALSCORERS ON CUP FINAL BALL

Players from across the football pyramid will have their names at the heart of this season’s Emirates FA Cup Final.
The FA has placed the names of 137 goalscorers from this season’s competition on the Nike Ordem V, Cup Final ball to be used at the 137th edition of the showpiece fixture. The Ball For All celebrates players from Step 6 of the National League system through to the Premier League, who all share the accolade of being a goalscorer in the world’s oldest domestic cup competition.
The names included represent goalscorers from every round, beginning at the Extra Preliminary Round through to the Semi Finals and also include a selection of the season’s most memorable and impactful strikes.
Among the names represented on the Ball For All are:
- Harry Saville of Little Common, whose strike in the Extra-Preliminary Round was the club’s first ever goal in the competition.
- Noah Keats, whose goal in the Fourth Round Qualifying saw Truro City become the first Cornish side to reach the First Round Proper since 1969.
- League One Wigan Athletic’s Will Grigg, whose strike against Manchester City sealed a famous Fifth Round victory.
- Alexis Sánchez and Willian, who both scored decisive goals for this season’s finalists.

Andy Ambler, The FA’s Director of Professional Game Relations, said: “One of the most special things about The Emirates FA Cup is that a goalscorer in the Extra-Preliminary Round shares the same accolade as some of football’s most famous names. Over three thousand goals have been scored in this season’s competition, from all levels of the football pyramid and the 137 from across the country are representative of all who have contributed to this season’s competition.”

At the close of the season, The FA will have distributed a total of £14.6 million in competition prize money to the 737 competing teams.
