THE EMIRATES FA CUP FIRST ROUND PROPER DRAW DETAILS
The Emirates FA Cup First Round Proper draw will take place on Monday 21 October from 7pm on BBC Two.
Crewe Alexandra will be ball number 14.
Conducted by Karen Carney and Jermaine Beckford, the draw will be broadcast live from the home ground of either Royston Town or Maldon & Tiptree, depending on which side is victorious on Saturday afternoon.
The 32 non-League clubs that progress from this weekend’s fourth round qualifying ties will be joined by 47 clubs from Leagues One and Two.
Due to Bury FC’s removal from the English Football League and subsequently The Emirates FA Cup, there will be an odd number of clubs entering the draw. As a result the final club left in the draw, that isn’t drawn to play in a tie in the First Round Proper, will receive an automatic bye to the Second Round Proper and will also receive the prize fund payment applicable for the First Round Proper.
The First Round Proper is scheduled for the weekend of Saturday 9 November with winning clubs collecting £36,000 from The FA prize fund.
