Not us unfortunately. So no other bidder came forward to fill in the Setanta gap. One game per round will be streamed "free-to-air" (whoopee-do) on the FA website. Imaginatively, Leeds this time.

Obviously a shame but we'll be on in the 3rd round.

As for the 2nd round, noticed that the draw is on Sunday at 3.35 (after the 1.30 game). I'd hate to miss that! ;)

Live FA Broadcast fee is £67,500 per club


Frustrating no ?

Both clubs could do with that...
Erecting a man of straw and then blowing it down does not an iconoclast make...

"Highlights of all matches will be screened on ITV1."


As per above website.

I know it means we wont get any money, but at least we'll get some coverage.

Even if the match isn't broadcast live, surely it will be shown on the FA Cup highlights on ITV???

Yes Norwich did get a TV game in 2007. It was a third round away tie at Tamworth, and the locals were a great deal friendlier than they were the time Wealdstone played them all those years ago. City won 4-1.
