When is the FA Cup fourth round draw? How to watch, live stream and start time

The draw for the fourth round of the FA Cup is almost upon us - but when will the draw take place? Here are all the details.

The third round of the historic competition kicks off on Friday, January 6, with Manchester United hosting Everton at Old Trafford in an all-Premier League tie.

Other matches of the round include Tottenham vs Portsmouth, Oxford United vs Arsenal and Manchester City vs Chelsea.

The latter clash will be the second time the two sides have faced other in three days, with City and Chelsea involved in a Premier League encounter on Thursday evening.


A total of 64 sides will enter the third round, with three non-league sides - Wrexham, Chesterfield and Boreham Wood - involved.


The scheduled games in the third round will stretch across four days.

Here is when the draw for the fourth round is likely to take place, and how you can watch it.


FA Cup fourth round draw: When will it take place?

At the time of writing, the FA are yet to confirm a date or start time for the FA Cup fourth round draw.

However, in keeping with previous years, it is likely to take place before Monday evening's clash between Oxford and Arsenal at the Kassam Stadium, which is being shown live on ITV1.

That match commences at 8pm.


FA Cup fourth round draw: How can I watch it? Is there a live stream?

Again, while no details have been confirmed, it is likely that the FA Cup fourth round draw will take place on ITV1, who are carrying coverage of Oxford vs Arsenal.

If this is the case, live coverage of the draw would also be available on ITVX, the channel's new streaming platform.

FA Cup fourth round draw: Will there be replays?


Yes, third round replays have been re-introduced by the FA for this season, after being scrapped last season.

That means that not every tie may be resolved by the time of the fourth round draw, and replays must be played before the fourth round fixtures scheduled on the weekend of January 28.
