FA Cup Ball Numbers Known (3/12/16)

With FA Cup second round ties taking place this weekend, the ball numbers for the third round draw of the competition have now been allocated.

With the second round kicking off yesterday evening in the draw between Macclesfield Town and Oxford United, the bulk of the fixtures take place later today and on Sunday, with the second round stage closing out on Monday evening in the game between Lincoln City and Oldham Athletic.

The draw of course takes place on Monday December 5 prior to the kick off of that game and will take place simultaneously on BT Sport and BBC Two with the draw commencing at approximately 7.10pm.

The draw itself it will be made by former England captain Steven Gerrard and former England striker Ian Wright, and obviously this stage of the competition sees Premier League and Championship clubs enter the competition.

The 32 round three ties are provisionally set to take place across the weekend of January 6 to 9 - but no doubt there'll be a replay or two to consider before eventual opponents are confirmed for some.
