FA Cup 2020 – Third Round – Live TV Coverage on BBC, BT Sport

The 2020 FA Cup third round takes place this weekend with live TV coverage on BBC and BT Sport.

The action gets underway on Saturday afternoon as Rochdale host Newcastle United on BT Sport from 12.31pm.

BT Sport 1 will also air the later FA Cup third round tie between Wolves and Manchester United from 5.31pm.

There’s a triple header of FA Cup action on Sunday as Middlesbrough host Tottenham on BT Sport 1 from 2.01pm; Everton travel to Liverpool on BBC One at 4.01pm; and Gillngham take on West Ham on BT Sport 1 from 6.16pm.

The final game of the weekend comes on Monday night as Arsenal host Leeds United at 7.56pm on BBC One.

All FA Cup third round ties will be delayed by one minute to encourage fans to ‘Take A Minute’ to think about looking after their mental health, as part of the Heads Up campaign.

The move will see all 32 ties, excluding replays, kick off one minute later than their traditionally scheduled broadcast and non-broadcast timeslots, for example 3.01pm, 12.16pm and 7.46pm.

It is hoped that the initiative will raise awareness of the importance of looking after our mental health, with 60 seconds representing just the first step in the journey to improved wellbeing.

During the minute delay, fans will be encouraged to consider the positive impact 60 seconds can have on their own wellbeing or in supporting a friend or family member.
