Winning clubs receive £1750 from The FA's prize fund
For the first time on British television, ESPN will air an FA Cup Preliminary Round match live, as Uxbridge host Wembley FC at their Honeycroft ground.
Wembley FC hit the headlines earlier this summer when it was announced that Terry Venables would become the club’s Technical Advisor.
Following this, it was then confirmed that legendary former players including David Seaman, Graeme Le Saux, Ray Parlour, Martin Keown, Claudio Caniggia and Brian McBride would be representing the team in this season’s FA Cup.
After Wembley’s 3-2 win over Langford in the Extra Preliminary Round, The Lions now travel the short distance to face Uxbridge to see if they can progress to the First Qualifying Round.
The journey has also been captured as part of an ESPN documentary series called “Dream On: Wembley FC” which is currently airing every Thursday evening on ESPN.
Episode Two will be broadcast on 23 August at 10pm.
