“When Burton secured a replay at Old Trafford (against Manchester United in 2006) they earned $1.1 million in that year,” Horne said. “That enabled them to pay off the debt on their stadium, invest in playing talent and ultimately progress into the Football League.
“Crawley last year earned $2.4 million from the competition, including a 1-million pound ($1.6 million) payday at Old Trafford.”
The FA Cup is in the first year of a $38 million, three-year title sponsorship deal with American beer brand Budweiser.
