How would you like to be at the first FA Cup final to be held at the new Wembley on 19 May?

Inside Sport is looking for your best snaps of grassroots football, featuring anything from boots to pies.

Our favourite photograph, received by midnight on 13 May, will win two tickets to the final.

The winning picture - which best sums up the passion of the game - will be chosen by presenter Gabby Logan and Roger Mosey, Director of BBC Sport.
