Fans are being encouraged to submit their own FA Cup adventure pictures

The FA Cup has been on many great adventures during its 143 year history – but none like its most recent trip to the South Pole.

As part of a scheme from The FA calling for fans to celebrate the adventure of the historic competition, the famous trophy travelled to the southernmost point on Earth with adventure photographer, Martin Hartley.

The multi-award winning snapper is working with The FA over the course of the 2014/15 season to capture the unique story that is 'the adventure of The FA Cup'.

Fans are being encouraged to submit their own FA Cup adventure pictures via Twitter using the hashtag ‪#‎FACupAdventure, for inclusion in an FA Cup 2014/15 Adventure Book.

Anyone who provides content will be in with a chance of winning prizes throughout the competition, including tickets to The FA Cup Final.

Hartley said: "The similarities between the adventures I go on and The FA Cup is clear to see.

"Both provide edge of seat moments, victory against the odds and heartbreaking moments of being so close, yet so far away.
