The FA has confirmed that, for the first time, all 32 Emirates FA Cup Third round fixtures will be broadcast live in the UK. This will include Brentford's match against Middlesbrough. This will be played on the weekend of 9 January 2021 but a definitive date has not yet been set.
The FA announced yesterday that 24 matches will be live across BBC and BT Sport platforms, with the remaining eight fixtures exclusively delivered to homes by Deliveroo via The FA Player. The eight fixtures that are the primary match selections for broadcast on BBC and BT Sport have been chosen. Brentford's game is not one of those. See the list here.
BBC and BT Sport’s 16 secondary match selections – which will be made available across a combination of digital platforms and linear red button services – and the eight additional matches on The FA Player will be announced in due course. As soon as a date is confirmed for our match, it will be announced on Club channels.
