How to stream the FA Cup

The FA Cup (officially the Emirates FA Cup) is streaming live on ESPN+ and the ESPN App.


ESPN+ is a subscription service that extends ESPN’s existing website and app, and it's essential for soccer fans in particular, carrying Serie A+, MLS, USL, and FA Cup matches. It encompasses other sporting events as well, including 20 exclusive UFC Fight Night events per year, 180 NHL games, at least one MLB game a day for every day of the season, and a cornucopia of college sports.

ESPN+ also features the network's sports talk programming, and it features original series starting with the entire 30 for 30 catalog ESPN made its name on. It also unlocks more content and fewer ads on the ESPN site.

with Disney+
and Hulu
