Players can register whether they are part of an established team or an individual who can join 'wild card' teams that are formed prior to the tournament starting.

Once the registration is complete the competition will take place over three rounds; Round One, Semi-finals and Final.

The FA People's Cup was formed in 2015. In its first year over 30,000 people took part in the competition which resulted in over 1,000 new teams being created. Last year another 35,000 players took part in the biggest 5-a-side tournament in the country.
