English football's FA Cup will be sponsored by Budweiser for the next three years.

Budweiser, owned by the Belgium-based Anheuser-Busch InBev, has long been a sponsor of the World Cup.

The FA Cup, first played for in 1871/72, was first sponsored in 1994 by Littlewoods. Budweiser is the competition's fourth different sponsor.
