Satellite and Cable channel ESPN have chosen their live match for the FA Cup First Round Replays. They have opted to screen Conference National side Bath City's home game against League Two side Dagenham and Redbridge as their broadcasted match. That will be played on Wednesday 23rd November. ESPN appear to have dictated a slightly earlier start to proceedings - this game will have a 7.15p.m. kick-off.
Generally ITV have not always taken up their option of broadcasting a replay at this stage of the competition.
A broadcast fee has yet to be revealed, but in previous seasons it has been half the value of the original tie fees, and so would give a sum of £33,750 per club.
The two television companies revealed their live matches for the First Round two days after the draw was made, so expect those ties to be chosen within the next 24-48 hours or so.
