In the United Kingdom, television rights are held jointly by the BBC and ITV, with live games being shown on both broadcasters.

As Premier League clubs make their first forays into the 2023/24 FA Cup, every cup game broadcast for the third round will involve a team from the English top flight. A Thursday night encounter starts the action off as Crystal Palace host Everton before Burnley’s trip to Tottenham the following evening.

The Tyne-Wear derby starts Saturday’s lengthy fixture list at midday, with Championship side Middlesbrough entertaining Aston Villa later in the day.

The tie of the round arrives on Sunday as two tournament favourites in Arsenal and Liverpool collide at the Emirates Stadium, having only recently met in the Premier League at Anfield.

Manchester United reached the final of this competition last season before being beaten by treble winners Manchester City. Their journey to Wembley starts with a Monday night encounter with Wigan.
