DirectRooms.com – Attend the FA Cup Final in London 16 May 2010
April 14, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsDirectRooms.com reports on the 2010 FA Cup Final. One of only 10 events reserved for live broadcast on UK terrestrial television, the FA Cup Final is due to air on the 16th of May 2010. With attendance close to 90,000 people in 2009, the event's viewers and attendance should be higher than ever in 2010.
The Cup Final is the final match in the Football Association Challenge Cup, and the second most attended domestic club championship event in the world, the culmination of a knockout competition among Football Association clubs in England. Many spectators stay in a local London hotel in order to travel to the stadium and watch the game live.
Since the teams represent the best in English soccer with many players also on international teams, there is no experience quite like attending the FA Cup Final, especially when you consider this is the culmination of an entire season's worth of games, which means the fans expectations are at the highest level.
Football is the most popular sport in England, and in almost every other country it is the primary sport in terms of international appeal, with the exception of the United States where popularity is split between American football, basketball and baseball. Football, or soccer in the US, is becoming more popular since the US hosted the World Cup in 1994.
The FA Cup Final is the premier event to attend for football fans, regardless of their team loyalties.
