Football's coming home!

Does your team have what it takes to walk the Road to Wembley? 

This family board game takes you back to the 1984 FA Cup! Recreate the game with your favourite teams and knock out the competition! 

Wembley celebrates the good old days, capturing the atmosphere and excitement of the game before the glamour of the Premiership, when all that really mattered was the game and the glory.

When it comes to the fight for the FA Cup, 90 minutes of fierce competition will leave only one team standing….

Wembley was built for the British Empire Exhibition of 1924 and was initially known as the Empire Stadium. Designed by Sir John Simpson and Maxwell Ayrton it was built in 300 days and completed only four days before the famous 1923 ‘White Horse’ FA Cup Final between Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United. Once described by Pelé as ‘the cathedral of football’ Wembley along with its iconic twin towers was demolished in 2003 and replaced by the new Wembley Stadium.

How to Play

Gameplay starts at the crucial third round, when only 32 teams are left in the competition. Once the team cards have been drawn, it’s down to you to manage your teams to the top. Will you invest your hard earned cash in star players? Or hope the odds are in your favour when you roll the cleverly weighted dice?

As the game progresses, players must turn the Draw Cards to reveal which teams are going head to head. The dice are then rolled to find out who will claim the gate receipts and stay in the competition. When there are only two teams left, it’s time to take your places at Wembley for the final match!
