Premier League and Championship clubs will learn how their FA Cup adventures will start this week, with several sides hoping to end a barren run without a trophy by earning domestic success.

Second-round ties have been played across the weekend, with the likes of non-league sides Chorley and Marine taking their places in the third round.

It is at this point that the top-flight and second tier clubs will join the competition, with Arsenal the current holders and also the side with the most all-time wins to their name, on 14.

By the time the final comes around in mid-May, Manchester United will be five years since they last won it, it will be 15 for Liverpool, 26 years for Everton and a full three decades for Tottenham.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the draw.

When is the draw?

The draw is set to take place at 7:10pm on Monday, 30 November before the final second-round tie is played, which sees Canvey Island face Boreham Wood.

Where can I watch it?

The aforementioned match will be shown on BT Sport 1 and the draw will be live on the same channel before kick-off. The draw can also be watched via the FA Cup’s YouTube, Twitter and Facebook channels.

Who is in the draw?

There are 64 teams in total, comprised of 20 Premier League clubs, 24 from the Championship and the 20 winners of the second-round ties.

When is the third round?

The games will take place across the weekend of Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 January 2021. Each of the 32 winners of the round will take £82,000 each from the competition's prize fund - an enormous amount for the smallest sides in the competition and potentially a season-saving amount for even football league clubs this year, given the lack of fans in stadiums.
