When is the FA Cup third round draw?

The FA Cup draw takes place this evening and City will learn who awaits in the Third Round.

44 Premier League and Championship clubs will join the 20 teams who have battled through the first two FA Cup rounds proper.

City are ball number 23.

As with Rounds 1 and 2, it will be live on BBC 1 at 7.30pm before the final Second Round tie between Guiseley and Fleetwood Town. 

The 32 Third Round ties will be played on or over the weekend of 4, 5, 6 and 7 January.

Six non-League clubs survive, with Solihull Moors, Southport, Woking, Wrexham, Hereford United, Barnet and Guiseley all going into the hat.
