The FA has confirmed that ITV’s cameras will be returning to Braintree Town for The FA Cup with Budweiser First Round while ESPN has chosen two replays for live broadcast.
Heavy rain in Essex prompted The Iron’s game with League One leaders Tranmere Rovers to be called off on Sunday morning but ITV will head back to the Amlin Stadium when the two sides meet on Tuesday 13 November at 7.45pm.
However the game has switched channels with ITV4 now carrying the First Round tie with the winners facing Chesterfield at home.
Both sides receive £63,800 in FA live broadcast fees while the winners take home an extra £18,000 from The FA Cup Prize Fund.
ESPN’s FA Cup coverage kicks off the week on Monday 12 November with AFC Wimbledon v York City at 7.45pm.
The two sides drew 1-1 at Bootham Crescent on Saturday with Jamie Reed giving the Minstermen the lead on 62 minutes before Charlie Strutton’s late equaliser forced a replay.
ESPN’s First Round replay coverage continues with a trip to Moss Lane and Altrincham v Burton Albion on Thursday 15 November at 7.45pm.
The Conference North side came within 90 seconds of a giantkilling on Sunday but Calvin Zola’s equaliser saved the Brewers.
Altrincham led 2-0 at the break and had missed a penalty inside the first five minutes.
Goals from Zander Diamond and Jacques Maghoma got the hosts on level terms before an own goal from Damien McCrory put the Robins back in front.
Burton had also missed a penalty with Robbie Weir firing over from 12 yards.
But Altrincham were denied an away trip to Crewe Alexandra’s Gresty Road in Round Two by Zola’s last gasp goal as the game finally ended 3-3.
All four clubs in ESPN’s replay coverage receive £31,900 from the live broadcast fund while the winners can add £18,000 to their coffers from the Prize Fund.
The live Second Round ties will be announced in due course
