FA Cup Third Round Draw Ball Numbers: Balls Numbers

The third round draw of the English FA Cup is set to take place on the evening of Monday 4 December, before Slough face Rochdale in the last of the second round fixtures.

The draw gets underway at 7pm, with 64 teams to be drawn at random, meaning anyone can face anyone across the 32 ties.

With teams from the Southern Premier League and Conference North still in the hat, City could be drawn against a fellow Premier League outfit or one of the competition’s minnows.

The third round fixtures are scheduled to be played over the weekend of the 6 January 2018, though the date and kick off time are yet to be confirmed.

Last year’s beaten finalists Chelsea, Leicester City and Arsenal are among the 44 teams from the Premier League and Championship to be joined by 20 other teams that progressed from round two of the competition in the draw for the third round.

That means that a total of 64 teams will be in the hat, making 32 match-ups in the next stage.

The ties will take place on the weekend from Friday, January 5, until Monday, January 8.

Leicester City have not made the quarter-final since 2012 when they lost 5-2 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge while Chelsea have won the English FA Cup seven times.
