Fourth Round Replays Selected for TV

Wednesday 29 Jan 2020
Tottenham v Southampton be shown live on BT Sport on Wednesday 5 February

The schedule for televised Emirates FA Cup fourth round replays has been decided with BBC set to show Oxford United v Newcastle United and BT selecting Tottenham Hotspur v Southampton. 

There are six replays in total with five set to take place on Tuesday 4 February and the other, Southampton's trip to north London, scheduled for Wednesday 5 February.

Newcastle have been taken to a replay in both of their FA Cup fixtures so far this season, eventually beating Rochdale 4-1 in the last round before being held to a 0-0 draw at St James' Park by Oxford. 

That is the case for Spurs as well having come through a nervous third round replay with Middlesbrough in the third round and surrendering their lead late on against Southampton in the 1-1 draw at St Mary's. 

The FA live broadcast fee is £72,000 per Club. Winning clubs will receive £180,000 from The FA prize fund and a place in the Fifth Round.


Confirmation of the full schedule of matches for The Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round Proper will be announced following the completion of the Fourth Round Proper Replays.
