150 Years of the FA Cup Final - Great FA Cup Moments!
From its earlier beginnings, football developed as a sport in 1863 when representatives of 11 clubs from the London area gathered to form what would become the Football Association. The formation of the Football Association Challenge Cup became key to the development of modern football, as teams entering the competition had to abide by the uniformity of FA rules. As it reaches its 150th anniversary, winning the FA Cup represents the pinnacle of domestic club cup achievement.
To celebrate the 150 Year Anniversary of the FA Cup final, Jersey Post will issue a set of 8 commemorative stamps highlighting great FA cup moments throughout history. ‘Roy of the Rovers’ comic artist David Sque illustrates a series of iconic game moments across a range of philatelic products.
Also included in the issue are a miniature sheet illustrating the first ever FA Cup final in 1872, and a Souvenir Miniature sheet featuring an illustration of the Jersey Bulls’ debut cup run in 2021/22.
