Best Answer

Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers are the only teams to have won it 3 times in a row, making them the longest holders of the FA Cup. However, Portsmouth won the FA Cup in 1939, and with the FA Cup not being contested again until after the war (1947) they can also say they are the longest holders of the cup.
