FA Cup Third Round Draws

FA Cup Third Round Draws

The second round of the FA Cup takes place this weekend and following that, all eyes will be on the draw for the third round of the competition ahead of it taking place in the New Year

Reading FC’s focus may well be on the Championship right now and gaining enough points to ensure they are not dragged into a relegation scrap over the coming months.

However, with the New Year in sight, there will be a welcome distraction from league duties for Veljko Paunovic and his players as the FA Cup clicks into gear.

The second round of the competition takes place this weekend, which means the famous third round weekend is on the horizon.

Reading of course are still yet to win the FA Cup but they have made a good fist of it in recent times.

The closest they came was back in 2015 when they lost in the semi-finals to Arsenal at Wembley while they reached the quarter-final stage in 2010, 2011 and 2016.

Last season, they exited at the third round stage after losing 1-0 at Championship rivals Luton Town so Paunovic will be hoping Reading can go at least one better this time around.

Here is all you need to know about the draw.

When is the draw?

The draw for the third round of the competition will take place on Monday, December 6 as part of the coverage for Boreham Wood’s game at home to St Albans City.

How can I follow it?

The draw will be conducted on ITV4 as part of the coverage of the all non-league tie in the second round.

The programme starts at 6.45pm and the match starts at 7.45pm.

It has not been confirmed yet if it will take place before or after the game.

Who is in it?

The 20 winners of the second round ties commencing this weekend will be in the second round draw.

The remaining 44 spots will be taken up by the 20 clubs in the Premier League and 24 Championship clubs who enter the draw at the third round.

When are the fixtures taking place?

Matches in the third round will take place between Friday, January 7 and Monday, January 10, 2022.
