The FA Sunday Cup is a knock-out competition founded in 1964 for English Sunday league football teams.
Prior to 1960 The Football Association did not permit clubs or players under its jurisdiction to take part in competitive football played on Sunday. A change of policy by the governing body in 1960 allowed Sunday leagues to become affiliated to County Associations and, four years later, The FA started the Sunday Cup to allow Sunday players to compete in a national knock-out tournament.
The Sunday Cup trophy was presented to the FA by the Shah of Iran as a gift to mark the centenary of the FA in 1963. It was created by Iranian silversmiths.
In the Cup's first season (1964–65), teams representing Sunday players in various counties entered with London winning the two-legged final 6–2 against Staffordshire.
In the first final featuring club sides, Ubique United beat Aldridge Fabrications 1–0 in 1965–66.
After The Sunday Cup’s inaugural season, 1,600 requests for entry forms for the following season’s competition were received. Entries for season 2017–18 were 80. Since its inception in 1964-65 (53 years ago) the competition has been won by 42 different sides.
The most successful team is Hetton Lyons Cricket Club FC with 4 wins, in 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2012. St Joseph's (Luton) have appeared in a record five finals, winning on two occasions in 1995 and '96. Seven other teams have been successful on two occasions – Carlton United in 1967 and '73, Newtown Unity in 1972 and '74, Fantail in 1980 and '81, Nicosia in 1991 and 2004, Oyster Martyrs in 2011 and '13, Humbledon Plains Farm in 1990 and 2014 and Hardwick Social in 2017 and 2018.
Hardwick Social FC became the first club for 22 years to retain the trophy since St Joseph's (Luton) in 1995-96.
Current holders Campfield FC were crowned as the 2019-20 FA Sunday Cup winners at St. George's Park, following their narrow 1-0 victory over St. Josephs (Luton) FC.
After a tight Final at the national football centre in Burton, it took an extra-time goal from Elliot Nevitt to seal it for Campfield as they take their FA Sunday Cup haul to two titles following their previous title in 2015.
The Liverpool Business Houses Football League Premier Division, faced St Josephs of the Bedfordshire County Football League after initially starting their journey to the Final back in 2019.
But with the COVID-19 pandemic forcing the 2019-20 competition to roll into the 2020-21 campaign, the Final was staged on neutral ground at St. George's Park.
It was a typically close encounter as the clubs pitted it out to claim the biggest title in Sunday League football with the score at 0-0 after 90 minutes.
And when Campfield's number nine Nevitt rose highest in the box to crash home a header in just the third minute of extra time from a corner, it proved enough to seal it for Campfield.

Sunday league football is a term used in Britain and Ireland to describe the amateur association football competitions which take place on Sunday rather than the more usual Saturday. The term pub league may also be used, owing to the number of public houses that enter teams. Sunday league football is stereotypically seen as being taken less seriously than Saturday football and involving players who are often unfit or hungover, and the term "Sunday league" can be used to denote a performance which is inept or amateurish.
