Entitled ‘Adventure Flight’, the poem was written by renowned poet Lemn Sissay MBE, who is famed for his work as the official poet of the London 2012 Olympic Games.  

The poem captures the unique adventure that football fans experience with The FA Cup. From the dreams of the underdogs, the edge-of-seat moments and the heartbreak that comes with another campaign coming to an end. 

On writing ‘Adventure Flight’ Lemn Sissay MBE said: “The FA Cup is like no other competition in Football. Every year, fans experience a unique adventure – with hopes and dreams of reaching Wembley Stadium for a day of glory. This poem captures the essence of The Cup and the journey the fans go on.”
