FA CUP draw live on BBC


The FA Cup returns to the BBC on Monday night when the draw for the first round takes place at the National Football Centre at St George's Park in Burton.

Mark Chapman hosts the draw from 19:00 GMT on BBC Two, BBC 5 live and online, in front of a live audience of 300.

The 48 teams in Leagues One and Two will be joined by the likes of AFC Fylde who beat Kings Lynn, Warrington Town of the Evo Stik league who beat North Ferriby and Gosport Town  both making round one debuts like Fylde.

The ties will take place on the weekend of 8 and 9 November.

Draws for subsequent rounds will be held at different venues around the country.

With so much at stake those facing replays will know their potential opposition which will add to the pressure. Prize money alone for getting through the last qualifying round into the FA Cup proper is worth £12,500 to a qualifying club of which there are 32.

With 13 of the final qualifying round ending all square there will be plenty to play for this coming Tuesday and Wednesday.
