Sutton United's FA Cup Game To Be Shown On BBC


Surrey FA affiliated club Sutton United will take on Arsenal in the fifth round of the FA Cup, live on BBC One.

It’s fair to say that Sutton United’s 1-0 victory over Leeds United in the fourth-round of the FA Cup captured the imagination of the country. Despite sitting 83 league places below Leeds, Jamie Collins’ 53rd minute penalty sent The U’s through to the fifth-round, where a fixture at home to Premier League giants Arsenal now awaits.

With 12 FA Cup titles in their history, Arsenal hold the joint-record for the most tournament wins, setting up Sutton’s tie as a truly momentous occasion.

For those unable to secure a ticket at the 5,013 capacity Ganders Green Lane, the BBC have since announced that the fixture will be broadcast live on BBC One on Monday 20th February, with kick-off at 19:55 (GMT).

Two Routes To Wembley

Aside from their headline-grabbing FA Cup campaign, Sutton also hold another potential route to Wembley.

The fifth-round of The Buildbase FA trophy saw Sutton United and Boreham Wood play out a 0-0 draw at Ganders Green Lane, with The U’s being reduced to nine-men in the process.

The replay will take place at Meadow Park on the 7th February, with the winners earning a quarter-final place at home against Lincoln City on 25th February.
