BBC and ITV have announced their broadcast picks for the Third Round of 2022-23 FA Cup.
BBC will televise Manchester City’s blockbuster clash against Chelsea at Etihad Stadium on Sunday 8 January, with kick-off confirmed for 4:30pm GMT on BBC One as Graham Potter’s Blues look to atone for their exit at this stage of this season’s Carabao Cup against the same opposition.
Newcastle United’s trip to Sheffield Wednesday will also be broadcast live on BBC One, with the tie at Hillsborough confirmed for Saturday 7 January at 6pm GMT.
ITV meanwhile will broadcast all four of their allocated picks for the first time this season – having dropped one and two picks in First Round then Second Round respectively, beginning with Everton’s visit to Manchester United on Friday 6 January at 8pm GMT on ITV1.
Reigning champions, Liverpool then will meet Wolves 24 hours later on 7 January at Anfield in an all Premier League, albeit live on ITV4 due to ITV1 opting for their traditional Saturday evening line-up.
Leeds United’s away tie at Cardiff City will then be broadcast live on ITV1 on 8 January, with kick-off at Cardiff City Stadium confirmed for 2pm GMT as Leeds look to avoid a sixth consecutive Third Round exit in the FA Cup.
Oxford United will then bring the Third Round to a conclusion with a home clash against Arsenal at Kassam Stadium on Monday 9 January in a 8pm GMT kick-off, with the match set to be broadcast live on ITV1.
All 12 clubs will receive an £85,000 live broadcast fee plus their prize money based on the FA Cup’s prize pot for this season’s competition.
