The Football Association have announced the list of matches that be screened fully live as part of the FA Cup Second Round. The BBC had already announced that AFC Fylde would be hosting their Friday night match, and this afternoon BT Sport have finally decided their two choices. They will take in a home match for Notts County for their Saturday lunchtime screening, whilst they'll travel to Slough Town on Monday night.
The full list of live matches are as follows:
Fri 01/12/2017 : 19:55 : AFC Fylde vs Wigan Athletic
Sat 02/12/2017 : 12:30 : Notts County vs Oxford City
Sun 04/12/2017 : 19:45 : Slough Town vs Rochdale
All six clubs will bank £72,000 as a Broadcast Fee (provided no late postponements) whilst all Second Round winners will bank £27,000.
Note that BT Sport's decision on the live matches will not complete the weekend schedule. BBC Sport will still move around eight matches to the Sunday afternoon at 2.00p.m. to enable them to show their BBC Final Score rolling updates programme. At present, the following games have been moved:
AFC Wimbledon vs Charlton Athletic
Blackburn Rovers vs Crewe Alexandra
Coventry City vs Boreham Wood
Meanwhile Yeovil Town's trip to Port Vale still doesn't have an officially announced date. With Stoke City playing Swansea City in the Premier League on the Saturday afternoon, there was due to be a decision made over when the police would allow the fixture to go ahead.
Given the BT Sport announcement, and the moving of three fixtures to Sunday, we'd expect the others to fall into place over the next 24 hours.
