2017/18 FA Cup Quarter Finals Draw On Saturday

The quarter final stage draw for the 2017/18 FA Cup will take place on Saturday evening.

With the fifth round stage kicking off on Friday evening with Leicester City facing Sheffield United and Chelsea entertaining Hull City, the bulk of ties take place on Saturday, with a match apiece on Sunday and Monday.

The quarter final draw itself will take place following Saturday's Huddersfield Town v Manchester United late kick off and will be screened exclusively by BT Sport with their programme beginning at 8pm. The draw will be covered on the BBC Sport website and broadcast live on BBC Radio5Live.

There are a number of potential upsets remaining in the fifth round draw and the competition does still see three lower league teams hoping for an extra scalp in the shape of Rochdale, Coventry City and Wigan Athletic.

Ball Numbers for the draw have already been allocated.

1 Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea City
2 West Bromwich Albion or Southampton
3 Chelsea or Hull City
4 Leicester City or Sheffield United
5 Huddersfield Town or Manchester United
6 Rochdale or Tottenham Hotspur
7 Brighton or Coventry City
8 Wigan Athletic or Manchester City

The draw will be conducted by Michael Owen and Shay Given and quarter final ties will provisionally take place across the weekend of March 16-18 with winners pocketing £360,000 from the FA Prize Fund.

Let's see whose FA Cup dream continues...
