Brentford will kick-off their Emirates FA Cup campaign on Saturday 4 January. The Bees have been drawn to play Stoke City in the Third Round proper and the details have now been confirmed. The game will be played at Griffin Park and will kick-off at 3.01pm*. It will be Brentford's fourth match in ten days after Sky Bet Championship games against Swansea City, Millwall and Bristol City.
Stoke's most recent visit to Griffin Park came in September as The Potters left with a point following a 0-0 draw in the Sky Bet Championship. Last season's run saw us reach the Fifth Round for the first time since 2006 before losing to Swansea. Stoke, who were runners-up to Manchester City back in 2011, exited at the Third Round stage for the third straight year.
Ticket prices for the match have been confirmed as follows:
Tickets will go on sale next week.
*Please note, all Emirates FA Cup games will kick-off a minute later than usual on Third Round weekend as part of a mental health awareness initiative.
If a replay is needed it will be played on Wednesday 15 January.
