When is FA Cup draw? Start time, TV channel, live stream, ball numbers for semi-finals today

The FA Cup semi-final draw takes place today, with a trip to Wembley on the horizon for this weekend’s last-eight winners.

A short-but-sweet ceremony is due to get underway on Sunday afternoon. By then, three of the four semi-finalists will have been revealed with Manchester City thrashing Burnley 6-0 on Saturday evening after another Erling Haaland hat-trick to make it a miserable return to the Etihad Stadium for club icon Vincent Kompany.


Sunday saw Sheffield United knock out Championship rivals Blackburn before League Two minnows Grimsby were thumped by Brighton. Following the draw, Manchester United host Fulham in an all-Premier League contest at Old Trafford.

Here are all the details for today’s semi-final draw...
