'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC- American firm take over FA Cup

Rotherham United, along with every other team in England, will be taking part in the FA Cup sponsored by Budweiser for the next three years.

For the last five years, E.On, the energy giants, have sponsored the FA Cup, which is the world`s oldest domestic competition.

Budweiser, who is owned by Anheuser-Busch, won`t disclose the amount they have paid to be the first US sponsors of the FA Cup.

The FA General Secretary, Alex Horne, told the FA.com, 'We are extremely pleased to have secured an iconic brand such as Budweiser to be the Lead Partner of The FA Cup. Like The FA Cup, Budweiser has a proud heritage and a long history of being involved in football.`

Global Vice President of Budweiser, Jason Warner said, 'Budweiser is proud and excited to sponsor the world`s oldest and most famous domestic cup competition and we are looking forward to sharing our passion for the beautiful game by bringing the FA Cup closer to fans around the world through an exciting programme of activity. '

In an FA Cup first, Budweiser will be giving the fans the chance to vote for the Official man of the Match.
