When is the FA Cup semi-final draw? Time, ball numbers, TV channel and who Man City & Man Utd could face

How to watch FA Cup semi-final draw ahead of Man City & Man Utd fixtures this weekend

Manchester City and Manchester United are both in action this weekend as they take on Burnley and Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-finals. The two clubs will both be hopeful of lifting the trophy at the end of the season and could find themselves meeting at Wembley Stadium if they can avoid each other in the semis.

Both teams are hosting the quarters on home soil and are clear favourites to progress to the next round. With the likes of Sheffield United, Grimsby Town and Blackburn Rovers still in the competition, one of Pep Guardiola and Erik ten Hag are highly likely to pick up the silverware in the FA Cup final on June 3.

Neither side have had much luck in the Cup in recent years, with Guardiola only managing to win one trophy since joining the club seven years ago, while the Red Devils haven’t won since beating Crystal Palace in the final in 2016.

With Man City set to reunite with Vincent Kompany this evening before United take on Fulham at Old Trafford tomorrow, here is everything you need to know about the semi-final draw.

When is the FA Cup semi-final draw?

The draw will take place tomorrow (Sunday March 19). It will begin following the conclusion of Brighton & Hove Albion vs Grimsby Town which kicks off at 2:15pm, which means United fans could discover their potential opponents before their 4:30pm clash with Fulham.

How to watch

The FA Cup semi-final draw will be broadcast on BBC One straight after the Brighton fixture, meaning it could take place from 4pm - in the half an hour before United’s kick off. The draw can also be live streamed via the BBC Sport official website and BBC iPlayer on any computer, mobile or tablet device. Fans can also keep up to date with the draw via the Emirates FA Cup social media channels.
