Premier League and Championship clubs join Emirates FA Cup after third round draw

Monday 30 Nov 2020
The draw for the Emirates FA Cup third round was made on Monday evening

The draw for the third round proper of the Emirates FA Cup was made on Monday evening, with clubs from the Premier League and EFL Championship all entering the competition.

Following the weekend's second round ties, all eyes were on the draw ahead of Monday's game between Canvey Island and Boreham Wood, two non-League clubs who both had a close eye on the draw and went into their game knowing the winner would take on Millwall at home. 

Among some tasty looking ties, we have eighth-tier Marine facing Tottenham Hotspur at home and National League North team Chorley also at home and against Derby County.

Elsewhere, there's a west London derby between QPR and Fulham and Crawley Town will host Leeds United.

This season's third round proper will take place across the weekend of Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 January 2021, with the 32 winning clubs at this stage collecting £82,000 from the competition's prize fund.

All fixtures will be scheduled in the days to come and will be announced after discussions with clubs, broadcasters and local authorities.
