Guide to Watching Round 1 on Freeview:

  • There are two games on Friday night – one of them is live on BBC Two. Highlights of the Millwall game will appear on the BBC Sport App. BBC Red Button has FA Cup Goals between 10:00pm and 11:15pm, expect the goals from tonight’s two games scheduled here, in a loop. These are also repeated from 4:30am on Saturday morning, right through to 2:30pm on Saturday afternoon.
  • 28 games on Saturday – with a live game on BT Sport 1 at midday. BBC Red Button has goals from 5:30pm till 7:00pm – whether all 28 games will be shown in that time, it’s hard to say – last year goals of some games didn’t appear until later in the evening. Full goals will be on the BBC Sports App/Website.  These are also repeated from 4:50am on Sunday morning, right through to 4:50pm on Sunday afternoon.
  • 9 games on Sunday – with BBC1 hosting an edition of ‘Final Score’ and screening the goals as they happen. No Red Button coverage scheduled in the evening, so full goals will again appear on the BBC Sports website/app. BBC2 has a 90 minute highlights programme of the weekend at 5:30pm on Sunday, but with the time constraints, some games will be neglected compared to online/Red Button coverage.
  • 1 more game on Monday evening to be shown live on BT Sport – but there’s no Red Button coverage of FA Cup Goals on Monday evening or Tuesday – so the only way to see highlights of Southport v Fleetwood will be on the BBC Sport website or app.
