The television broadcasting companies have chosen three live matches for the FA Cup First Round. There will be one each shown on Friday night, Saturday teatime and Sunday lunchtime, with the following matches selected for broadcast:
05/11/2010 : 19:45hrs : Rochdale vs FC United of Manchester (Friday night, ESPN Channel)
06/11/2010 : 17:30hrs : Cambridge United vs Huddersfield Town (Saturday teatime, ESPN Channel)
07/11/2010 : 12:00hrs : Southport vs Sheffield Wednesday (Sunday lunchtime, ITV1 Channel)
All six clubs above will receive a £67,500 broadcast fee from the Football Association.
Based on the above, Rushden and Diamonds vs Yeovil Town can be assumed to have a Saturday 3.00p.m. kick-off on November 6th, 2010.
The FA Cup Second Round draw will take place on Sunday 7th November, almost certainly as a tag-on to the above Southport match, at around 2.00p.m. although this has yet to be confirmed.
