Ball Number Confirmed For Monday's Emirates FA Cup Draw

Seasiders Allocated Number 3 For First Round Draw

17 October 2019

Blackpool will be ball number 3 in the draw for the first round of the Emirates FA Cup on Monday.

The draw, which will take place live on BBC Two from 7pm, will be conducted by Karen Carney and Jermaine Beckford. 

The 32 non-League clubs that progress from this weekend’s fourth round qualifying ties will be joined by 47 clubs from Leagues One and Two.

Due to Bury FC’s removal from the English Football League and subsequently The Emirates FA Cup, there will be an odd number of clubs entering the draw. As a result the final club left in the draw, that isn’t drawn to play in a tie in the First Round Proper, will receive an automatic bye to the Second Round Proper and will also receive the prize fund payment applicable for the First Round Proper.

The First Round Proper is scheduled for the weekend of Saturday 9 November.
